Anthony Gormley

Anthony Gormley creates human sculptures carved out of 3d patterns. Check his website for many other beautiful and though-provoking works.

I can't help but regret he feels obliged to use pseudo-scientific banter to try to impress his audience. In the introduction of his "Drift" series, he writes that "...the DRIFT works are more like the random matrices in fractal geometry...". Random matrice models are a certain class of statistical systems which play a central rôle in modern mathematical physics. I'm not sure what they have to do with fractal geometry, let alone with sculpture. Even if the analogy was pertinent, how can he expect the average visitor to know what random matrices or fractal geometry are? The most basic intellectual honesty would require at least to expose these concepts in elementary terms and explain in which sense they are relevant to his work.
