Everyone remembers creating their first Möbius strip. This seemingly impossible object, a loop of paper with a twist, is perhaps everyone’s favorite activity in grade school math. The Möbius strip is an elegant representation of mathematical beauty, a reminder of childlike wonder, and a symbol of infinity representing how ingenuity leads to a limitless future.
The sculpture, a two loop Möbius strip with a single twist near the apex, will touch the ground in two spots approximately 25ft apart. Within the bottom inner surfaces (which at the top becomes the outer surfaces!), a series of benches will line the concave walls for community interaction.
The form of the sculpture will be made of bright stainless steel with subtle cut-out patterns through which light will shine. Glowing diffusion will wrap the single continuous edge for both safety and to create a dynamic and even brightness throughout.
