homo ad terra circulum

2009, acrylic glass, gold leaf, H 213 cm x W 213 cm x D 2.3 cm

The work consists of eight engraved acrylic glass triangles, looking on the first sight like set squares used in geometry classes in Germany, and are arranged in a circle. The sections of the circular ring the triangles form are coated in gold leaf. The diameter of the imaginary outer circle which connects the outside tips of the triangles results from the body height of the artist with his arms outstretched upwards. The size and the scale of the set squares evolves from this body dimension.
