Section I by Aaron S. Moran

View all 7 Photos

A section drawing, based on its architectural purpose, is the two-dimensional projection of a solid object cut by a vertical plane. Artist Aaron S. Moran inverts this process and instead creates a (nearly) flat representation that, when viewed, appears as a three-dimensional sculpture. The series, titled Section I, is cleverly crafted from strips of reclaimed wood, and Moran uses the natural color of the wood, directionality, and bright accents of paint to make these “sections” pop out from the xy-plane. Similar to those visual reorientation illusions, each of the works is unique in their dimensional implications, and can lead to hours of spatial inquisition.
