The sculptural installation consists of a cloud-like formation suspended from the ceiling. The formation is made up of handmade paper wings suspended from an elliptical armature. This installation is an investigation into “The Divine Proportion”, borrowing the title of the book by H.E. Huntley. All components of this project, paper wings, suspension grid, and the ceiling armature are informed by the Fibonacci Numbers. It is a study of aesthetics, a visual translation as well as an ongoing interpretation of the concept of editions, or multiples from a printmaker’s perspective through repetitive process.
