The word azimuth originates from Arabic and means “the arc of the horizon to the zenith” (highest point ie straight above you). In this piece, the sense of the gradual movement from a still point to a climax is obvious.
The idea of an azimuth is very mathematical and have reflected this in the symmetry and balance of the work – creating a “calculated” path of progress – very suited to the minimalist inspirations at play.
