"Intuition"


This highly polished stainless steel sculpture by British artist John Robinson was installed in front of the Fields Institute of mathematical research at U of T in 1997. To quote the artist - "this symmetrical combination of interlocking hollow triangles, no two of which are linked, is an example of 'Borromean Rings' studies in knots". That is way over my head but I quite like the piece!

I believe it's impossible seeing this art piece and not start counting the triangles. ;-)
