-I have been working a lot with symmetry and chain-structures.

-The inspiration to me has been the fascination that a structure, that can look so chaotic, also can have a strict symmetric order.

The relationship between this work and mathematics is e.g. chaos, symmetry and order. It is built up with a rather unique chain-element. The chain containing eight parts and are linked together to form a cubic structure. If you want to figure out how they are connected, think about it, or If you want to see how: type in https://tordtengstrand.se/order-in-chaos/

The chain consist of 8 parts, with an eight-sided cross section, linked to form a cubic structure.
