A series of three works - an homage to Kubrick's mathematically relevant Tycho Monolith from the film 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). The three pieces are available as limited edition, signed and numbered c-type prints on archival paper. Read Less

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.
