"Whirled White Web"

This sculpture is a 3-fold symmetrical whirl of twisted andstretched saddle shapes.
Such saddles occur naturally in soap films that are spanning warpedwire frames;
such "minimal surfaces" are nature's way of creating strength indelicate structures.
Our sculpture uses these natural ideas to create an intricate networkof ribs and
internal spaces suspended from a web of three mutually interwovendouble loops.
