POLYHEADRA
is an analogue interactive installation and an inflatable sculpture at the same time. As the audience assembles the tubes of different lengths, ongoing collaborative formations emerge that go hand in hand with associations and imagination.

Magnetic rings attached to the black tubes and to the walls, floor and ceiling of a white cube allow to dock the tubes to the space or to connect them to each other.

DIG DEEPER
The title of this artwork is a wordplay combining the word „Polyhedra“, a three-dimensional shape in geometry and the word „head“.

The premiere of POLYHEADRA will take place in Milan on 23th December 2022. It was in Milan as well but 524 years earlier (1498) that Leonardo da Vinci completed his Polyhedra illustrations for Luca Pacioli’s book for Divine proportion. Later in 1597 Johannes Kepler in the book „Mysterium Cosmographicum“ developed his geometrical, elementary structures of the universe based on the „Five Platonic Solids“ as a representation of the 5 elements.

In the 1950s and 1960s Maurits Cornelis Escher created his impossible compilations as an invitation to imagine the possibility of impossibility. POLYHEADRA invites the participants to explore a collective creative compilations of the possible and the impossible as an art experiment. 

All the ideas that come out of the many minds of the participants constantly reshape the composition of this collaborative or, in other words, open-source work of art. The tubes and the changing formations of POLYHEADRA strongly remind of many basic structures in nature, e.g. bred coral reefs, bacteria, fossil fungi Prototaxites or the amoeboid cercozoan organisms Phaeodarea. POLYHEADRA as an oversized construction kit of life could be used as its representation. However, it could also be seen as a demonstration of the place where the ideas are generated by the self-configuration of neurons.
