Structured & Unstructured

Alert reader JP discovered two sculptures held in a private collection that represent both structured quadrilateral and unstructured (what looks like the Voronoi dual, actually) meshes.

Honda Syoryu is the artist who created the swirling structured grid below from woven bamboo, a medium he says is both incredibly pliable yet not completely controllable. You can read more about him at the TAI Modern website.


Artist: Honda Syoryu. See link above.

Artist: Lino Tagliapietra. See link above.
