Triennial Talk: Epistrophy – Timo Nasseri

Ground Level

Free entry

Although trained as a photographer, Timo Nasseri has become increasingly renowned as a multidisciplinary artist whose practice includes photography, sculpture and drawing. Using mathematical formulae to transform traditional designs into new arrangements, Nasseri explores the language of mathematics.

His artwork Epistrophy uses complex patterns that the artist has drawn from traditional Islamic muqarnas, a form of architectural ornamented vaulting used in Islamic and Persian architecture from the eleventh century onwards. When looked at from below, muqarnas create an abstract image of infinity.
