New photos and some new works too

 The first one in series for the exhibit in Rīga - my show is included in Rģa2014 - cultural capital of Europe. Currently all these series are in Riga.

Two new pictures of Day and Night in Hyperbolic Space - see dimensions in first post.
Fuzzy - mixed fiber, 60x60x40 cm (approximately)
Manifolds II  

Manifolds II are in memory of Bill Thurston who lost his battle with cancer. I thought it very appropriate to put these works on Treman willow tree in Cornell Plantation who also was killed by cancer.


















Manifolds II - 2012, acrylic, wire. Dimensions varies depending how they are displayed. Each are approximately 50x60x20 cm.

The following 7 models are series Manifold I - at the beginning they are all the same shape hyperbolic plane. But unlike ordinary plane  - paper sheet that has limited possibilities of being shaped in a way that prserves its geometry, hyperbolic plane has infinite possibilities of shaping.
