Designers Block / Site specific intervention with ten new works / 27–30 September 2001

1. Aluminium Flange Chair: Fabricated from two continuous strips of aluminium each bent and welded to create a central structural flange, then bent three times (in the opposite orientation) to create the cantilevered side profile. The chair is made from an inherently weak material (4mm aluminum sheet). Its strength is achieved through creating a central flange and is only strong for a centred downward load. The chair supports a person when sitting, yet even a simple push from the side exposes the off-axial weakness, creating a sideways torsion wobble.

2. Carbon Fibre Bench: A continuous uninterrupted form in profile, the bench attaches directly to a wall surface eliminating superfluous structure. Made from alternate layers of woven and biaxial carbon reinforcement with epoxy resin, it is constructed on a female mould involving vacuum bagging and post curing. Available in 60mm, 120mm, 180mm lengths and will also be produced in moulded plywood.

3. Ferrari Transposition: Screenprint on paper, edition of 100 framed and signed.

4. Fluorescent Light Light: A reduction of the elemental components of a fluorescent light into a small box which accepts a light tube and plugs directly into a wall socket. Conceived for mass production utilising an economic process of machining and manufacture. Sold without the fluorescent tube which reduces packaging and allows the owner to choose their own lighting.

5. Half Cubic Metre Cube: 4mm thick glass forms a cube with an internal dimension of one half cubic metre. Metallised film, reflective on one side and transparent on the other, was applied with the mirrored surface facing inwards. This creates the effect of being able to see into the cube and its infinite internal reflections.

6. Hand Dotted A1 Millimetre Graph Paper: Ink on paper.

7. Numerical Time Based Sound Composition: A digital time display counts to one hour using four units: seconds; tens of seconds; minutes; tens of minutes. A numerical sound composition has been constructed using the ten sequential digits: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9. Each digit has been assigned a tone. The tones are mathematically selected from the range of 20Hz to 20,000Hz; the two extremes audible to the human ear. The tones are logarithmically divided between the ten digits providing tonal increments that produce a musical scale. Every second a different combination of four tones is defined by the time counter.

8. Sun Light: Photographic print.

9 Royal Camouflage: Screenprint on paper, edition of 50 framed and signed.

10. Untitled Beatles Poster: Lithographic printed process in black, edition of 1000, 950 folded to A6, 50 framed and signed.
