Deep Structure

George W. Hart



This four-inch, 3D-printing sculpture is based on five nested forms, each of which is a modification of a 31-zone zonohedron.  This is made of plaster, impregnated with cyanoacrylic, so is quite strong. The material shows light and shadow beautifully.  Here is a close-up image which shows the texture of the surfaces:

The title alludes to my long-ago linguistics life, as a student of Noam Chomsky. I have drafted a paper that includes a description of the geometry and the algorithm behind this piece.
