Set of 3, totaling 12ft x 1.5in x 1in (366cm x 4cm x 2.5cm) spaced linearly
#1: 24in x 1.5in x 1in (61cm x 4cm x 2.5cm)
#2: 36in x 1.5in x 1in (91cm x 4cm x 2.5cm)
#3: 60in x 1.5in x 1in (152cm x 4cm x 2.5cm)

This is an experiment in using a plasma torch (a garden hose spraying high-energy plasma) to 'draw' the straightest line I can through 3mm steel.

Each bar is illuminated from within, echoing the energetic process used to create it and contrasting a perfectly straight laser-etched line with the indelible recording of my wavering hand. The lengths of each bar relative to each other also form a Fibonacci sequence, a growth pattern often found in nature.
