The cutter blades form the configuration of the maze as described by the plan and the model in the movie Shining (that do not match with the maze in which the scenes are played). The representation is symbolic, the blades don’t have the thickness of the hedges and impose a unit of construction with fixed size. It concentrates less on the proportions than on the movie tone and what remains in the collective memory: the steel and the sharpness of the axe, the reflecting texture of the snow… The title Shining is here taken literally, without mysticism.
The specific inclined shape of the cutter blades forms the basic unit for an axonometric projection in the architectural drawing. Conceived that way in the purpose to cut the surface, they here break with the drawing and the 2 dimensional representation by creating from certain angles an illusion of elevation, giving the impression to be in front of an architectural model.
