A three-dimensional model of a dodecahedron is constructed in three parts and photographed. The installation brings together the three photographs of this mystical, scientific object through the placement of the prints together in one space. The potential reconstruction takes place in the perception and experience of the viewer. The magnets reference the invisible factors which influence our lives, like cell structure and universal bonds.
