nice to meet you!
Five volumetric solids possess a unique geometry. They mold perfectly inside a circle and are constructed by equal angles and equal ribs only. Plato extensively studied these five geometries. Nowadays, we acknowledge the five so called polyhedrons as the Platonic Solids. These include: the cube, tetrahedron, icosahedron, octahedron and the dodecahedron.

The installation Plato's Poem is shaped as the dodecahedron. This solid is the closest to a sphere, such as Plato pictured the universe. The universe is fluid, ever-changing, and chaotic, like the wires around you when you enter the installation. The geometry of the wires is based on the golden ratio that hides within the pentagons of the dodecahedron.

The final installation was part of the exhibtion Religion in Motion at the Willem de Kooning Academy in 2018.
