Droogtrommel

 

A coil from a dry tumbler consists of 43 steel plates of 0.75mm thick, these are compressed and riveted wrapped around it are 2 bundles of copper wire.

Each individual image is experienced as a two dimensional image because the thickness is so small. By adding more pictures, depth and mass are created. Where is the boundary then between two and three dimensions?

For the Droogtrommel project, the plates were scanned onto a printer and then printed 557 times. In this way I applied this idea on the coil, but with a new medium, paper. Again with the paper, thickness is not experienced with a single sheet. During printing, the paper stacks up and becomes three-dimensional and so, the dry tumbler coil is complete again.
