Chiral Quartet

George W. Hart

This is an installation which I called Chiral Quartet, which I did for the show 2000 A.D. at the Vanderbilt museum in Centerport, NY, November 1997 - January 1998.  It includes a number of pieces, all with chiral icosahedral symmetry.  Despite their very different surface appearances, they share an underlying mathematical commonality.

From the top, clockwise, they are Battered Moonlight, a rhombic enneacontahedron, I'd like to make one thing perfectly clear, and a tensegrity structure. The rhombic enneacontahedron at right has a different coloring than my take-apart sculpture.
