Minimal I – Sphinx is a free standing installation. Algorithmic design processes allow for the genetic growth of complex form(s), with the use of simple syntactic rules. Tension and gravity are forcing the mean curvature towards zero and the surfaces tend to become minimal. The mathematical curves are adjusted to the human body proportions, in order to welcome many different sitting positions. It is a piece of art that can function as a sitting element and remain open for any future affect.
