Drawing surfaces and their deformations: The tobacco pouch eversions of the sphere

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The various sensuously possible cases of figures are not, as in Greek geometry, individually conceived and investigated, but all interest is concentrated on the manner in which they mutually proceed from each other. Insofar as an individual form is conceived, it never stands for itself alone but as a symbol of the system to which it belongs and as an expression for the totality of forms into which it can be transformed under certain rules of transformation.
