The abstract concept of the fourth spatial dimension has had a lasting effect on western thought, science and art. My doctoral work in the interdisciplinary context of mathematics and art studies the possibilities for designing novel methods to visualize 4-dimensional geometry. Visualization experiments with graphic, plastic and virtual media are informed by the theoretical background of low-dimensional geometry and topology. My goal is to help people understand 4‑dimensional geometry, enrich the spatial repertory of art practise and contribute to the methodology of artistic research.
