Equivalent IX2010 - 2011
'Equivalent IX' consists of nine sets of nine counters, each set a different colour. Laid out in different configurations, its mass remains the same. It is an homage, and at a tangent, to Carl Andre's 'Equivalent VIII'. Andre's work champions bricks (a material with which he was familiar as his grandfather was a bricklayer) mine celebrates buttons (my grandmother sewed buttons onto cards for a local haberdashery to help pay the bills).
Instructions: Lay the coloured counters out at a tangent to one another to form different shapes and patterns.
