Split Disk

 

Roger Phillips, Split Disk in Rectangular Frame

This was pretty and all, and it moved satisfactorily, but I really didn’t find it too fascinating. Sorry, Mr. Phillips.

I guess the most interesting part for me was that although the design was quite simple—a split red circle framed by square burnished “tubing”—the piece had different apparent shapes—the metal framing pieces in particular—depending on your viewing angle.

Certainly, the angular metal frame also contrasted with the circular shapes to which your eye is first drawn, because of their brilliant, reflective redness.

Perhaps I would have liked this better if it were bright yellow, like Prentice’s Zingers.
