SINE PLATE

Black Marble

 

2014

A sine plate is a compound angle holding device for fine machine work. It was made obsolete in the late 1980s by CNC machinery.

By non-form, I mean an object that is common among us, but is never looked at as a form; not appreciated. Just taken for granted. Something Baudrillard-like happens in that moment, because now there is this beautiful thing, divorced from all context, that was created in that instant. It still looks like all the others, but now bears no relation to the others and stands utterly alone.
