Modular Disc Sculpture, 2021
11 × 10 ¼ in
This is an interactive sculpture that allows the creation of an endless amount of colorful compositions. The four discs can be moved along the base’s slots and in between the slots.
"My fascination with translucency and acrylics began many years ago. In my prints, I often worked with overlapping shapes to blend and maximize the colors. It was when I started to look how to reproduce this effect in the form of a tangible object, that I started to experiment with acrylics.
The idea for the Modular Discs Sculpture started with a disc-shaped off-cut. I was cutting acrylic rings for something else and I noticed the disc - I then started to play with ideas to try and find a use for it. It’s quite typical of my process that while creating one thing, new ideas come up. I love that this piece allows you to create your own colorful compositions rather than it being dictated by the artist - it allows you to play with the sculpture until you find a composition that you’d like to keep and display until the next time you play with it." — Yoni Alter
