Overview

Infinity/ʎʇıuıɟuI is 24 x 6 x 5 ft. brushed stained steel sculpture from the series “Double Mobius Strip”, 2002 – 2018, which consists of pieces, fabricated with different materials: corten steel, stainless steel, combination of copper and bronze, leaded stained glass. All of them are large scale, up to 20 ft. tall.

Goals

Work statement:
Infinity refers to several distinct concepts, linked to the idea of "without end" which arise in philosophy, mathematics, and theology. The sculpture is based on the Ms strip, which is a surface with only one side and only one boundary component. In this work I combine two Mobius strips together with common edges. The result is one "double" rich and fascinating 3D form, representing the idea of continuance and endlessness of life.
