The Crest. Rick Vermey, 2016-19.  Folding Light.   Geometric origami-folded facade, in powdercoated aluminium, plus timber slatted podium screening. Contemplation of fluid surface patterns led to the artist creating a rhythmically repeating abstract design, which translates both two and three dimensionally into a compelling physical geometry. The result is a considered response to the phenomenon of changing light and shadow.
