Bridges Seoul 2014 Art Exhibition: The Kinochoron: A Manipulable Wire Model of the 16-cell

Research output: Artistic and non-textual formExhibitionArt in coproductionpeer-review

Abstract

The inspiration for the “Kinochoron” came when I saw the animation film “Dimensions” by Aurélien Alvarez, Étienne Ghys, and Jos Leys. I was mesmerized by the stereographic projections of 4-dimensional polychora and the visual effect achieved by rotating the polychora in 4-space. I wondered if it could be possible to make a physical model exhibiting the same ‘hyper-rotation’, and understood that it would be a rewarding and difficult design challenge. The result of this undertaking is a manipulable model based on a stereographic projection of the 16-cell, which it is, to my knowledge, first of its kind.
