An homage to Kubrick's mathematically relevant Tycho Monolith from the film adaptation of Arthur C. Clark's 2001. The monolith is officially described as having a ratio of 1:4:9 with the depth being the smallest of those integers, and the length being the largest. This is an expression of (1×1):(2×2):(3×3).
Monolith I (2011). The piece illustrates the moment immediately following the tragic impact of a small body against this large, omnipresent object. The second and third pieces are set against original photographs by James Cambourne and Rob Chiu from coastal locations in England.
- Monolith II (2012). From an original photo by James Cambourne taken at Saunton, between Exmoor and Dartmoor on the coast, presented in very wide 2.35:1 format.
- Monolith III (2012). From an original photo taken at St. Michael’s Mount, Cornwall by Rob Chiu. I loved the mood and tone of the shot; cold and somewhat timeless. It already had a daunting but benevolent feel that made it the perfect backdrop to this piece.
