My reconfigurable geometrical objects are somewhere on the border between scientific curiosity, pure playfulness and sculpture. Their elements can move, and they can be transformed into various forms by rotating them according to our curiosity and mood. The basic underlying form always approximates to a regular solid, which may be turned into a random form or a pleasing, organic statuette. There is an intimate interplay between the sculptures and anyone who chooses to investigate them; there is no set goal and no right or wrong answer. With modern technology they can be automatic, and could be remote-controlled.
