The Ultimate Challenge
Though presented as a graphical artwork,
the underlying grid of the Blue Star Universe
is spherical and thus pre-sculptural.
A regular grid covering the surface of a
sphere allows the positioning of the full set
of sixty six-pointed stars, all touching with
five points their neighbours, leaving only
one point off.
Plain grids do not require necessarily “boundary conditions” to be met when creating hyper-symmetries. Playing simultaneously with sophisticated features of symmetry both locally on the surface of a sphere and even through its centre implies a new three dimensional reasoning.
