About Jonty Hurwitz
Born 1969, Johannesburg The Binge Thinking Collection is my study on the physics of how we perceive space. Each piece is the stroke of over 1 billion calculations and draws upon a unique way in which our brains interpret the spacial information they receive. I usually start by expressing a concept using mathematical tools, often involving billions of calculations and many months of preparation. I then explore ways to manifest these formulae in the physical world. Each piece is both an engineering and artistic challenge. The mediums I have worked with are perspex, steel, resin, powder, copper and acrylic.
