The Clearing

Ami Clarke

"[...] Cryptic architecture, where form no longer reveals function. They seem to contain the codes of some mysterious mental process"

J.G. Ballard - The Atrocity Exhibition 1969.

The geometric structure performs; eternally proliferating and gradually filling the space it inhabits. The ground plan, taken from Persian muquana design, is extruded through a stacking system employing the elements; square, diamond, and triangle. Modernist architecture, minimalist art; it reminds me of the gun emplacements and blockhouses along the Atlantic wall, the pill-boxes to be found in the UK. As indifferent to time as the pyramids.
