Geometry of Thinking: The Tensegrity Structures of Tom Barber
Tom’s work showcases the magic of natural geometric structures. His Fermat furniture series is constructed with stainless steel tubes and wires using the system of tensegrity. This enables structural strength while it appears that “nothing touches”. The exhibition also includes drawings, animations, books, and experiments.
The exhibition positions Tom within politically, scientifically and environmentally motivated art and design movements stemming from the 1970s, and highlighting his ongoing influence and legacy.
