Shows the beauty of nature with an encounter between the mathematical language that dominates the visible and invisible world. Nature is full of geometric surprises, just think of the perfect shape of an ice crystal, the pattern of a sunflower heart, but also the body cells when we look at them microscopically. Geometric patterns exist all around us and create the fundamental structure of life in the universe.
UNIVERSITY OF THE ARTS HKU
After an intensive graduation, I’ve found the perfect balance of nature and its underlying mathematical geometry within the fundamental structure of the system and the design with its flower-like profiles in both models. When you look deeper you see the in between spaces and a poetry through the idea of the collaboration of nature and mathematics. Layering and repetition creates a single moment of time made up of different structured and ordered layers.
The designs radiate a mathematical perfection, this perfection is formed from the ‘golden ratio’ which stands for its perfection and beauty, and the shapes of platonic solids, the building blocks of physical reality. The amazing thing is that these building blocks apply on almost every scale, from the microcosm to the macrocosm. It may sound strange that they really are the basic building blocks of our physical reality, but these shapes are extremely balanced and equal. And we all know that nature tends to balance things out.
The icoscahedron is one of the five platonic solids. These are regular solid structures that often occur in nature, but are generally hidden from our perception. This clean geometric shape is a mathematical gem for the eye. The fully polished stainless steel parts offer a kaleidoscope experience which becomes visible when it manages to capture its reflections.
SPIKED HEXA PENTAKIS TRUNCATED ICOSAHEDRON
Both the icosahedron and the truncated icosahedron from which the Spiked Hexa Pentakis Truncated Icosahedron (SHPTI-G21) was developed are naturally related. This perforated aluminum model with its yellow flower-like profiles contrasts the geometric design, the
strong appearance of the material with the natural, feminine design in the flowers shows the collaboration of nature and mathematics.
