‘Natural Triangulations’ explores the relationship between nature and architecture, by considering how they both use building blocks of repeated forms to shape complex structures. Each principle stems from an applied sequence of forms: such as bricks or florets that have a logical sequence or rhythm that enables them to exist.
In the same way that sunflowers’ formation can be related to the golden sequence or ferns’ curls measured to equal the Fibonacci sequence, many architectural structures’ roots are understood through the fundamentals of sacred geometry. The artwork presents the patterns of an evolving structure to reminds us that the building itself has been regenerated.
The vinyl window installations are composed from a series of multicoloured translucent triangles that move across the surface of the windows in a variety of sizes. The colour palette incorporates elements of the landscape: greens of the grass, blues of the water, yellows and pinks of the wild flowers in the Reserve.
‘Natural Triangulations’ highlights the ephemeral and fragile moments in time. The installation will be in a state of flux throughout the exhibition, at certain times in the day the colours will heighten and change.
It is intended to invite interaction with the viewer whilst also acting as a focal point between the interior and exterior space.
The artworks are a subtle gesture that acknowledge the fundamental elements of Walthamstow Wetlands - they allow us to see the surroundings alongside the artworks, to appreciate the colours and beauty of the landscape as it changes with the seasons.
