MF-142, Annely Juda Fine Art, London

Sarah Oppenheimer, Artist

The installation becomes a wall, ceiling or floor depending on the focus of the viewer within the gallery. The top and bottom surfaces of the folded plane are not parallel, creating an object that varies in thickness from a knife edge to 48”. A 30 foot wood “spine” along the fold is suspended once at midspan by two concealed tension rods hung from an existing roof beam. Ribs are CNC cut.  A kinked wood beam and large ribs are formed with lap joints and adhesive. Top and bottom plywood skins are designed as stressed skins to cantilever out 5 feet where they meet at a knife edge.
