On the Event Horizon of Order
Hofstetter Kurt is an artist who addresses geometry in his work. Based on mathematical insights he has discovered new construction principles, as well as new recursive methods in geometry. This lecture gives an overview of his artistic research work and his way of thinking and seeing, addressing in particular the following topics. 1. Parallelism and circulation: the infinite pendulum 2. The Sunpendulum project 3. New algorithms for constructing the Golden Ratio 4. The principle of Inductive Rotation (IR): new methods for generating aperiodic and asymmetric tilings 5. Artistic materialisations of IR tilings 6. Moebius Sounds: 4th movement of ZART una cantata moebius.
