Red-Shift is a hybrid sculpture and assemblage, inspired by utilitarian objects and materials. It refers to their function within the micro-architecture of our cities (in the context of what Marc Augé has called “non-places”). Four platform trolleys, each covered with hazard tape and corresponding panels of corrugated plastic, provided the starting point for this piece. A geometric design derived from the urban environment was then cut into the panels to form an inter-locking relief pattern and a trim of brush-strip fills the space between the underside of the trolley and floor. The title of the work makes reference to the revealed areas of red and white tape as well as the original transporting purpose of the object.
