Fascinated by the mystery and beauty of nature, and in particular by its mathematical and geometrical characteristics, I try to use these concepts to show my sensitivity and my inner questions through the creation of objects which demonstrate these concepts.

My preferred tools are fractal art, amazing polyhedrons, geodesic structures as well as tensegrity.

I also like transgression, and often build collapsible objects, which should not formally be so! Decorative stars are a good example of this.

PERPETUAL BALL

This ball, made of superimposed geodesic structures with incrementally increasing frequencies (showed here from 0 to 4), can grow an infinite number of times without ever reproducing the same pattern.

This object is intended to make you dream, to make you wonder about the infiniteness of time and space, as well as the limits of human beings confronted with the time required to make this structure grow without ever being able to finish it.

Does space have a center? Is it round? This is what this ball might suggest... although... should we stray from the Euclidian geometry?

May this ball make your mind bounce!
