Deep Structure

George W. Hart

This four-inch, 3D-printing sculpture is based on five nested forms, each of which is a modification of a 31-zone zonohedron.

The material shows light and shadow beautifully.  This close-up shows the texture of the surfaces.

And here is a view down an axis.

The title alludes to my long-ago linguistics life, as a student of Noam Chomsky.  I have drafted a paper that includes a description of the geometry and the algorithm behind this piece.
