Artist Statement:


A Zoetrope is constructed by attaching 60 phases of an object in metamorphosis to a rotating wheel. The “animation” is “frozen” in space via synchronized stroboscopic lighting. The metamorphosis is a torus turning “inside-out” at three points on its surface .

Costa’s genus 1 three-ended minimal surface is topologically equivalent to a simple torus.
