Klein bottle

A ‘real’ Klein bottle is an object with no inside and no outside that can only exist in four dimensions, a bit like a Möbius strip but even more fascinating.

Objects of Empathy

Objects of Empathy, by Miya Kondo, proposes “conceptual and aesthetic forms for everyday rituals with gesture, posture, handling and materiality. Ambiguous forms invite engagement and interaction creating a personal relationship to the object, and thus defining the functionality of the object.

-Jean Baudrillard
