Enter the twisted world of computer scientist and artist Carlo Séquin, where belts are cut so they double in length, donuts are sliced in half but don't fall apart, and surfaces pass through one another to make bottles where the “inside” is outside. Special introduction by Chuck Hoberman, award-winning inventor and artist, internationally recognized for the Hoberman Sphere and other “transformable structures.”
