Dodeca Hexahedron with Blood Orange, Amy Nawrocki, Origami paper and rubber cement.
The sculpture is sixteen triangular hexahedrons glued together created a twenty-four sided sculpture, inspired by the geometric insight and modularity of artists like of Sol LeWitt, Alexander Calder, and others. “Dodeca Hexahedron” is a guess. Soccerball was the alternate.
Here’s a poem from Reconnaissance (2015 Homebound Publications), inspired by LeWitt’s work.
Distilling Sol Lewitt
Obliterate, says the line,
the curve of the horizon; resist
tremors of an inexact hand;
tap into the statuesque control
of an oblique axis, lingering
in the infinite advance; find proof
of existence between the abscissa
and the ordinate, between Euclid
and Descartes, between an arrow
and its trajectory.
