Echo

12/02/12 Update! Echo has been sold!

This sculpture was an attempt to interpret an object which can only be properly represented in four dimensions: the Klein bottle. It explores themes of recursion, and memory (the different views present similar, but altered elements, like distorted memories of one another).  Like a Klein bottle, the gross form appears to change as your perspective (in three dimensions) changes. The curves making up the form seem to intersect in different directions as you move around the piece.
