The archapelago of Tristan Da Cunha, located in the South Atlantic, roughly midway between the southern tips of Africa and South America, is frequently referred toas “the world’s most isolated settlement”. Much liberty has been taken here with the placement and repetition of the islands. The organic, nearly insect-like shape of the islands and their outlines are complimented by not-quite-ridgid, linear forms beyond, resulting in a stable-yet-explosive composition.
