Sutra #4 is a sculpture based on the geometry of the hypercube, a mathematical concept referring to the fourth dimensions. The hypercube of Tesseract has sixteen nodes (corners), thirty-two edges, twenty-four square faces and eight bounding cubes. Sutra #4 reconstructs Euclidian geometry through an intuitive play with space, light and structure in a process of transformation and change revealing new structural space with a relationship to the organic and the poetic.
