Dominic Hopkinson | A Study of Aperiodic Tiling with special reference to the 3rd dimension | April 2016

The work of Dominic Hopkinson exists at the intersection between science and art. Following on from his 2014 exhibition ‘A Harmony of Spheres’ Hopkinson takes us ever deeper into the atomic structures and mathematical systems that govern our world.

Utilising a system of tiling that involves two differently shaped rhombic tiles, Hopkinson creates for BasementArtsProject a large scale installation expressing five-fold symmetry that extrapolates the flat tiled plane into the third dimension.

BasementArtsProject would like to congratulate Dominic Hopkinson on his inclusion in the 16th International Architecture Exhibition in Venice.

Those of you who visited BasementArtsProject in 2015 and 2016 may remember the work of Dominic Hopkinson: A Harmony of Spheres and A Study of Aperiodic Tiling with special reference to the 3rd dimension. Hopkinson has since spent a year as Artist in Residence in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Leeds, continuing his work on aperiodic tiling systems in 2 and 3 dimensions.
