Ewing Gallery Reception

Sunday, 11 November, 2012

Reception for current Ewing Gallery exhibition, Rhapsody in K-Dron.

Rhapsody in K-Dron will be a two and three dimensional installation, featuring a model of the K-Dron. The K-Dron is the geometrical form defined by its complexity and subtly. Discovered by Janusz Kapusta in 1985 and patented in 1987, the name K-Dron originates from K, the 11th letter of the alphabet, and GK-EDRON, the Greek word for surface. Being both a remarkably simple and complex structure, its basic form has a square base, 11 multifaceted sides and a diamond-shaped face with a 45-degree angle of inclination. Janusz Kapusta has developed K-Dron's versatility to invent the K-Dron game in which 8 K-Drons of two colors (black and white) can be manipulated to produce patterns of up to 38,416 possible combinations.
