World Device II – Obscure

World Device II – Obscure

I used a geometrical pattern out of the Alhambra in Spain
as the basis for making this architectural world.
In mathematics this is called a ‘tessellation’:
an infinitely repeating shape without overlaps.

By using this method I add an extra dimension to
the original historic pattern. This work tries to form
a bridge between our contemporary society and the historical culture
on which we have built through the ages.
We are standing on the shoulders of giants.

Searching for harmony in geometrical shapes is
like searching for the holy grail.
Intuitively I know that the ultimate beauty lies within it,
but the road that leads to it I have yet to find.

Max Tegmark, a renowned Swedish-American Professor
in Physics and Cosmology at MIT, wrote a book called
“Our Mathematical Universe” in which he posits that
reality is in fact a mathematical structure.

Maybe with this work I can reveal a glimpse of
he mathematical base structure behind our reality.

Commissioned Artwork

The Kellogg School of management, part of Northwestern University in Chicago,
asked me to make an artwork to celebrate the opening of their new main building “The Global Hub”.

This artwork is displayed in the building itself and is mounted and
given as a thank you gift to donors who helped fund the building.

The version above is the final artwork. The versions below show the process of making the artwork.
