Shadows cross our path everyday, going mostly unnoticed. What if one of them were from another place or time? Hyper-lamp is a 3D silhouette of a 4D tesseract. A tesseract (or hypercube) is a 4th dimensional cube with equal sides – projected here into our space.
Water hyacinth is an invasive species that has had a devastating effect on the natural environment and, in turn, has had an adverse effect on many of the communities around Lake Victoria in Kenya.
This project binds 4D mathematics with water hyacinth rope – theoretical physics with ancient craft. This object was designed to encourage vision beyond the flickering images we perceive, into the predictable unknowns we must consider.
