Chiral Ring is a suspended sculpture of stainless steel and glass as the artist’s response to the theory of chirality (the word comes from Greek for “handed” and refers to the left-right asymmetry found in nature.) The work is a geometric shape with an underlying concept of physics, chemistry and biology. Human hands are an example of chirality as well as the Toroidal Carbon Nanotubes of quantum science and engineering.
