Iva Tori (Ivana Lazić) —
The Book of Sand / Jorge Luis Borges

(paints, wood elements, 2016)

The Book of Sand is an interactive art book that is designed in the form
of a rhombicuboctahedron (an Archimedean solid with eight triangular
and eighteen square faces) which can be turned around and readout. The
squares are filled with text and abstract illustrations which are
following the story, while the triangles are presenting  Sierpinski
fractals. The idea behind this portraiture is that the book literally
exploded (like Big Bang) into described shape, which contains
information on it, as a symbol of mathematic eternity. As Borges himself
writes in his story about hidden mysteries in numbers and geometry of
infinity of time and space, the piece covers these motives by
illustrating them in a poetic and narrative way.
