The focus of my thesis is to develop a three-dimensional design method, which corresponds to the construction of my two-dimensional knot ornaments. I wanted to construct a closed knot ornament having a genuine three-dimensional rotational symmetry and based on congruent, intersecting spheres.

The thesis progresses through various construction experiments as I search for solutions to problems with mathematical as well as aesthetic characteristics. Finally, a two- and three-dimensional design concept begins to take shape, showing modularity, timelessness and unity resulting from its consistent geometric construction.

    Amazing and inspiring work. I enormously enjoyed the presentation at LKL this week and was very impressed by the dedication and application required to produce these designs
