London Tsai and Zack Treisman
to the ends of the world

stainless steel and latex
25 x 12.5 x 12.5 in
(63.5 x 32 x 32 cm)

Zack Treisman and I first thought of this object when we were working on our "Demonstrations" book at University of British Columbia where I gave a colloquium talk in late 2008. It always surprises me how such a simple construction can give rise to such a biomorphic shape.

It was fun working in Zack's office tucked away in the Math building and surrounded with old worn wooden furniture. We took a break and went for a walk down to a beach strewn with driftwood.

Then in the summer of 2010 when Zack came to visit us in Miami, we decided to make it out of stainless steel and cover it with some latex sheeting that I had gotten in the meantime.
