Net Gain: Experimenting with Geometric Folding

CENTRAL BOOKING and Sarah Stengle organized Net Gain as a pandemic invitational. As a jumping off point, artists were asked to use any of the more simple Sphericon to more complex Dimpled Icosahedron mathematical nets (patterns) drawn by Stengle, meant to be cut and folded from a single sheet. The choice of content was left up to the artists to explore. Our CENTRAL BOOKING community of mathematicians and artists have contributed to what will be a book that includes the work, process and nets for all to try their own hands at it. Accompanying exhibitions both in the virtual and real worlds are in future plans.
