Richard Lippold

On a recent trip to the MoMA, I saw several pieces by Richard Lippold, an 20th century American sculptor with a background in industrial design.  Lippold was known for his skill with geometry and engineering, creating beautiful pieces from wire, among other materials.

Lippold’s Ad Astra, which resides at the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C., is seen here at the right.  And there is a Lippold at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, called Sun, which apparenlty contains more than 2 miles of gold wire.

A lot of people live in the intersection of Math and Art, and they do some very cool things!
