Circle Piece  (Medusa)
1977 | Brentwood, Missouri
Weathered Plywood | H: 42/107 W: 66/168 D: 1/3 (in/cm)

Nickel used a logarithmic spiral divided into 13 parts to create this Circle Piece. He stenciled the formula “60° divided by 13” onto the wood, then made his cuts and reorganized the parts into a suggestive vortex. As with all Circle Pieces, the process preempts the final results; the formula was merely a control to cut the wood.
