A kinetic sculpture that spins on a thread.

A yellow triangle, a red square and a blue circle. In 1923 Kandinsky proposed a universal correspondence between the three elementary shapes and the three primary colours.

The triangle is dynamic and yellow, the square is is static and red and the circle is serene and blue.

Taken up through the Bauhaus, where the idea was to find the origins of "visual language", in a quest to establish a science of art, the three shape/colours formed the basis of their design theory, and the basis of this work.
