The M.C. Tangram is a candle holder that makes a full rotation during the time it takes to burn a candle. It renders energy tangible through movement, drawing observers into everyday processes that they are hardly aware of (or not at all). Experimenting with established processes in nature creates new manifestations in various forms – a subtle transformation from one shape to another. As the candles lose their mass, the cande holder starts to move. To allow this movement to be observed, the candle holder has four silhouettes hidden inside it, which are revealed over the full 7 hours it takes to burn a candle. During this time, the candle holder rotates about its axis, producing a continuously changing perspective. In this design, the process (i.e. converting the release of energy into movement through changes in mass) has been conceptualised in a cande holder. Showing people the energy ‘hidden’ inside everyday processes and harnessing it in a simple manner can lead to ‘new’ ways of thinking about energy.
