The Kid Should See This

Portal icosahedrons

A steel icosahedron—a polyhedron with 20 faces—is lit with bars of LED light, illuminating the transparent mirrors within. Looking inside reveals seemingly endless mazes within the space. This video by filmmaker Eric Minh Swenson showcases the work of multimedia artist Anthony James at there-there, a gallery in Los Angeles. The featured pieces are from his Portal Icosahedron and neon Aura series.
