This work is part of an experimental series with leftover plexiglas laser cutouts from another design project and fiberglass mesh used in construction applications. While playing around with the triangle shapes as part of a modular system to create illustrations I got curious about the possibility of creating isometric shapes with them. I came up with this triple-plus-3D-shape realized by overprinting the same shape in two colors rotating it 120 degrees. The layer of fiberglass mesh creates an interesting texture, especially in the overprinted areas, giving the solid shape at a closer look, a somehow lightweight and inmaterial character.
The work was selected for the New Impressions 2020, an international, juried exhibition organized by the Hamilton Woodtype Museum to showcase exploration and creativity with letterpress printing techniques and received the Directors Cut Award, chosen by museum staff.
