Symbols are a powerful and effective method for communicating meaning. Symbols require formal language, whether in the form of sound, text, shape, etc. This project is an exploration of the relationship between form, symbol, and meaning using the basic constraints of (primarily) equilateral triangle and square bases with 30-60-90 degree faces and slopes. This results in a series of handmade paper lightshades that evoke and contrast geometric motifs of (1) the primitive shelter gable and (2) the monarchic human crown, and blurring the illusion of high-low class strata through form, light, shadow, and perception.
