"Whirled White Web"

This sculpture is a 3-fold symmetrical whirl of twisted and stretched saddle shapes.
Such saddles occur naturally in soap films that are spanning warped wire frames;
such "minimal surfaces" are nature's way of creating strength in delicate structures.
Our sculpture uses these natural ideas to create an intricate network of ribs and
internal spaces suspended from a web of three mutually interwoven double loops.
