As part of the studio’s body of work exploring symmetry and repetition in geometry, UVA created Heliostat.
The work considers symmetry and repetition in geometry and is inspired by the way the sun casts light. Shapes appear and disappear within the sculpture as both real and virtual light are cast onto the cubic lattice. The installation is suspended from the ceiling, projecting light upwards and outwards across the reception’s interior and will also be visible by passers-by.
