Polyhedra is a hanging glass installation whose geometric basis is the platonic body dodecahedron. Specifically, it gives the impression that a so-called small stellated dodecahedron is enclosed by a truncated dodecahedron star.
In fact, the object consists of 12 separate, sealed glass bodies which lie in a stainless steel construction and are made of different coloured and colourless pieces of glass.
Polyhedra is not only a geometric object but also a colour and light experiment: the superimposition of blue and yellow glass pieces creates green-turquoise colour mixtures that are barely distinguishable from the actual turquoise glass pieces. With the help of a spotlight, this play of light is projected from the object onto the wall behind it.
