Amplitude is an exploration in 3-Dimensional mathematics using perpendicular Sine waves through linear and rotational movement. Using a continuous cycling motion, the distance between the rotating arm and the central axis changes the relative distance to each part of the outer circle. this creates the change of Amplitude and the appearance of horizontal movement while only creating vertical strokes. Mathematics in design is an often-overlooked aspect of the craft, perceived as a burden of the process rather than a tool for exploration. Using nothing more than the physical manifestation of the Sine equation, a continuous, yet transparent moving form is created. ​​​​​​​
