GSS Fabrication was commissioned by Jeanine Griffin, curator at Gymnasium, in Lincoln, to fabricate the Portals as part of an exhibition of linked works from Raqs Media Collective. They recall George Boole’s ‘logic gates’ – conceptual sites of entry and exit for answers to questions that can end in either a yes or a no answer – which he first spelt out in his ‘Investigation into the Laws of Thought’.
The sculpture was digitally modelled enabling us to unroll its surfaces to provide a series of parts which were later water jet cut from sheet steel. The Sculpture was fabricated in two parts for ease of transportation and installation, the arcs and the base.
