Studio E, Allison Leigh Holt: A Living Model Of Hyperbolic Space:

The shortest distance between two points? It’s never a straight line, but rather a negative curve. In fact, the crenellated form of curly lichens looks a lot like the true shape of the space we find ourselves in, so-called hyperbolic space. In Holt’s bio-sculptural installation, A Living Model Of Hyperbolic Space, Parmotrema lichen (sustainably harvested with The CA Lichen Society) are magnified naturally through the refractive properties of water, within globes of hand-blown glass.

Studio D, Art by Skye Gwilliam and William Pressley.
