Designer Josh Hadar takes this pithy statement to heart, crafting some of the wildest steel fabrications we’ve ever seen. It’s fascinating stuff, and the images alone have piqued my interest in Tyng’s theories, which cover topics from Jungian cycles to the cosmos. Jonathan Muecke, Cranbrook alum and recipient of the Veuve Clicquot Award, will show Open Objects, a collection of pieces all tightly tuned to the possibilities of their own particular properties.

A tetrahedron, cube, octahedron, icosahedron, tung dodecahedron, are built to human scale and can be entered, explored, comprehended. There are also examples of Tyng’s publications and research, which investigate Jungian cycles, city squares, and the cosmos.
