Sphere inversion

  1. 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?

  3. the whole sculpture has a 2 mm shell

    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?

    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! :eek:

    I love it!

    That must have cost a pretty penny. :eek:

    @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 :)
