Re: human apparent asymmetry
What's interesting about the double organs of the kidneys and the lungs is that both organs carry out a lot of osmosis, thus it might just be that the design of these organs reflect the balancing operation that they largely perform.
osmosis : diffusion of fluid through a semipermeable membrane from a solution with a low solute concentration to a solution with a higher solute concentration until there is an equal concentration of fluid on both sides of the membrane.
Re: curved space
Kaleidoscopic symmetry perfectly describes almost all of the Virtual Museum series.
Kaleidoscopic symmetry also perfectly describes much of Baroque architecture and design--Guarini and Bavarian Baroque especially come to mind.
Kaleidoscopic Lacunae, a book executed in about three hours by myself and Anna D. July 2001, is entirely an exercise in asymmetry, albeit kaleidoscopic. For almost two weeks now, I've been formulating a new series of artist books entitled Architecture Not Now!--kind of like 'architecture scrap book' meets "Learning From Kaleidoscopic Lacunae".
artist's statement about his least proficient art
Basically a curatorial exercise giving the stupid stuff that I haven't actually thrown away or destroyed a chance at having an audience, or at least making it more visible.
Re: this is art?
Perhaps Londoners are just eager to see more sunshine than they are used to.
