Mathematical precision: the symmetrically arranged household object sculptures of Zachary Abel

Zachary Abel is a lecturer in the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab. He’s passionate about mathematic and geometry studies and draws inspiration from them to create amazing sculptures made of household objects, such as binder clips, playing cards, paperclips, and many more, with incredible precision.

I think about math constantly, and I see and look for math in everything around me. Geometry in particular fascinates me, and I delight in discovering hidden patterns even in the most mundane of objects. By transforming often-overlooked household items into elaborate, mathematical sculptures, I hope to share this sense of excitement, curiosity, and beauty that a mathematical outlook has instilled in me. Maybe I’ll even be able to learn and teach some math along the way.
