    Hungarian artist Attila Csörgö uses fruit peels to demonstrate problems of space and plane geometry in his work Peeled Spaces. Distorted Spaces focuses on the photographic representation of our surroundings. The Platonic Geometry is a series of kinetic sculptures dealing with the metamorphosis of a regular polyhedron. Csörgö applies the language of geometry and physics to traditional, pre-digital-age materials like sticks, strings and small electric motors to describe and reconfigure spatial relationships between objects. Csörgö’s work has been exhibited in Europe and the United States. He received the Nam June Paik Award in 2008. Respondent Thomas D. Trummer is Curator of Visual Arts at Siemens Stiftung, Munich.
