Heike Brachlow

Heike Brachlow’s new sculptures were developed during a residency at the Australian National University, where she spent three months early in 2015. They are based on a concept invented by London-based designer Tony Wills: surprising three-dimensional forms can be created by joining the edges of two flat surfaces that have the same circumference. These forms, when transformed into glass solids, show off the characteristics of transparent colour: variations in hue and value depending on the form as well as changes in different types of illumination.
