An exploration of the hyperdimensional art of Clark Richert.

Clark Richert has been working with quasi-periodic tilings based on 5-fold symmetry since he and fellow artists founded the Drop City near Trinidad, Colorado in 1964. Recent paintings have explored relations among Penrose tilings and cubic lattices in 6 and 10 dimensions. His work has been exhibited throughout the country and he was recently called the "most famous artist in Colorado" by the Denver Post. He is also a Zometool co-inventor.
