»(…) after software has entered history, math cannot and should not be understood ahistorically.« (Galloway, The Poverty of Philosophy: Realism and Post-Fordism)

Euclidian Geometry was perceived for a long time as true description of reality. It embodied an ideal of harmonic order and logic. Platonic bodies are easy to make in 3-D programs and a very popular motif. The 3-D-scans of hand-formed sculptures relate to the history of platonic bodies and transform their mathematical beauty, their claim to represent world through reduction and logic.
