Waiting for a Vaccine (K20103),
Exhibition: Bridges, Helsinki, Finland, 2021
The structure of the work (Pentakis Dodecahedron or Geodesic Icosahedron [1,1]) refers to the structure of viruses studied in laboratories. The colors reflect the strong emotions that accompanied us in the year of the pandemic: despair and hope, pain and relief, expectation. The flat tape that weaves around the structure refers to the mathematical concept of the Hamiltonian path, but also symbolizes the vaccine for which we waited so long as we fought – and are still fighting – to defeat the virus.
