“The Secant project is about visual and semiotic contrast;

the crystal disc communicates something pure, fragile and

elevated in value, whilst the machined aluminium parts and

the pulley communicate the industrial” Daniel Rybakken.

The mobile moves in counter poise. When one disc is lowered

or heightened, the other disc moves in the opposite

direction. It is constructed from hand cut crystal glass

discs, anodised aluminium and is connected together with a

spliced rope. The mobile show the strength, utility and

refractive qualities of glass used in a way that both

builds on and usurps the tradition. It is lit from a

single point above and functions both as an installation

and light piece.
