English: This picture is part of an exhibition on the science of art , it is 3D. ,human vision is stereoscopic , I have created two complex mathematically generated " grids " - one for each eye - this works sublim,inally , no special technique is required .

The frame is the famous Penrose triangle, the psychologist Roger Penrose created 2D visually ambiguous and impossible figures , These are to reveal how human perception works , it is not simply a matter of images recieved on the retina- perception involves : expectation, learned assumptions, past experiences, and the encoded Information in our genes.The Picture is fluorescent , but may be viewed in normal light conditions also- most of my artworks can be viewed vertically or horizontally for differing effects .I use the geometric figure of a tetrahedron because it is so stable and allows for astounding geometric structures to be built . It is found naturally ( subliminally ) everywhere on earth - for example it is found in the structure of human D.N.A. and in many internal organs , it is found in atomic structures and molecules ( hydrogen atoms, water molecules, it is found in molecular geometry

Also , Silica is the most abundant mineral on earth , ist structere is tetrahedral it can link together to form Sheets or complex 3D structures- The pyramid at Giza is a 2000 year old self referencing terahedron- why? - because the mathematics contained in its structure give its exact longtitude and latitude on the earth - and whoever built it knew the exact weight of the earth !

The philosopher Plato said that nature can only be decribed by the language of mathematics .

There is a small lecture to accompany these artworks please visit my artpage at-

thank you greetings from Berlin
