His interest in geometric forms having developed during his training in the plastic arts, the author
studies not single polyhedra, as closed forms, but rather families of polyhedra and their spatial
relationships. Some forms are defined starting from the diagonal planes and extended face
planes of regular and semiregular polyhedra. New constructions arise by manipulating the
symmetries of simpler forms.
Ratios of lengths within a single form suggest juxtapositions of similar polyhedra of different
sizes. These juxtapositions take the form of logarithmic spirals (also known as afractaISw),
in which the face sizes vary, at least in principal, from the infinitely small to the infinitely large.
