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.
