# Sphere inversion

Sphere inversion [message #28760] Wed, 08 June 2011 15:25 UTC
This print was made for the exhibition Math & Art at the school for Architecture in Ghent. It is a physical site specific sculpture installed in De Witte Zaal.

The sculpture was a collaboration of artists Patrick Labarque and Corneel Cannaerts

That's a beautiful sculpture! All sides of it are equally interesting. Is the big spherical part solid or hollow?

Thanks for sharing these! It's always fun to see what people create when they use Shapeways to create projects for school.

Very, very cool...! I love the physical representation of a distorted space....

This is a very clever idea. Am I right in thinking that this is made by taking the geometry of the hallway and doing a sphere inversion on it? How big is the inverting sphere relative to the hallway, or the sculpture?

@henryseg

idd, first we made a model of the room, than we generated the shere inversion

the radius of the sphere is 22.5 cm
the room is about 30m

That's wild!

I love it!

That must have cost a pretty penny.

@fabriek.org, I just wanted to let you know I gave your Sphere Inversion a nod in this past week's Friday Finds.

Keep up the awesome work.

Nice use of sphere inversion!

I'm very fond of spatial warping methods like that
