Part of an ongoing investigation into the use of fivefold symmetry, this structure is based on a dodecahedron, wrapped in five divergent lines. A tetrahedron made of high-reflectivity glass sits within the dodecahedron. These two Platonic solids connect at the four corners of the tetrahedron. The sculpture has a halogen bulb fixed at its centre. When the light is off, the glass reflects the fivefold pattern; when the light is on, the pattern is projected onto the walls of the surrounding space as shadows.
