“Solids” – a series of photographs by Magdalena K. and Maciek Zych presents the designs of regular polyhedrons, known as Platonic solids.
Those mainly known to mathematicians and philosophers three-dimensional figures must meet strict conditions, so their quantity is limited. Plato discovered and described four of them: the tetrahedron, cube, octahedron, and icosahedron. The fifth supplementary item – dodecahedron – was discovered by his student, Teajtetos. These precise structures builded and placed in the open air seem fragile, light and create a tension between them and surrounding environment. They become a part of nature, designate an interesting esthetics.
