This artwork is part of a serie of 3-dmentional color gradients. Each geometry is based on a specific torus knot where the amount of color follows the amount of coils of the curve. In this specific case the gradient is generated by 3 main colors (red, green and blue) as it follows the knot T(3,4) with 3 coils around the torus and 4 turns around the axis.
Travelling along the curve, the colors blend together in a broad spectrum of variations that helps to navigate the geometry.
