From Tony Robbin:
This print was developed after consultations and collaborations with mathematician Scott Carter. We can tie as string in a knot because we can pass it over and under itself in three dimensions: a one dimensional string existing in the space of two greater dimensions. If you want to tie a sheet into a knot, or braid multiple sheets, you need a space of two dimensions greater than the two dimensional sheet itself: that is, a space of four dimensions . In this print surfaces have an internal structure and are made of three dimensional objects; they are braided in ways that are impossible in three dimensions but are possible in four and five dimensions. Transparent planes help to weave the spaces.
