Animation of a geometrical fantasy designed by Wenzel Jamnitzer (1508-1585). Adding just an extra touch of absurdity…
The original engraving is part of the book Perspectiva Corporum Regularium (1568). The book is arranged in six chapters. The first five show the influence of Plato’s Timaeus and the correspondence of the platonic solids with the elements fire, earth, air and water.
The final chapter deals with what could be best described as polyhedral monuments or geometrical fantasies.
