Knot made of 12 Bernoulli lemniscates that reveal to be a torus’ sections.
The idea comes from a previous work (meant for hands-on
interaction) which were Borromean rings made with rigid material.
Now, instead of three rings, we have 12 lemniscates also
crisscrossed. The 12 lemniscates, that are the torus’ sections by
an inner circle’s tangent plane and are distributed symmetrically,
reveal their parent torus.
It tries to bring closer the mathematics of flexible objects, like knots, with rigid objects, in this case, the torus.
