The artist defined form using only light and line in this sculpture.
Young's latest work consists of thin rods of Pyrex glass that are heated and assembled with great facility into web-like sculptures that, in his words, address the question, "Can form be defined using only light and line?"Many of the resulting pieces reveal the artist's keen interests in calculus and geometry. In this example, two catenary curves have been "rotated" into a three-dimensional form that is suspended amid a rectilinear compositional base, which, in turn, is bisected down its middle.
