An Extraordinary Artistic Invention by Polish-American Business Club Member Janusz Kapusta Debuts at the Gershwin Hotel in its Unique Artistic Aspect
NEW YORK, March 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Noted artist Janusz Kapusta, presents his most stunning artistic invention at the Gershwin Hotel in New York, March 21-April 20. The artist, a member of the Polish-American Business Club, reconstructs “the infinity of K-Dron,” an image and 3-D installation that marks the first ever interior installation at the Gershwin lobby.
For years, the Gershwin Hotel has been collaborating with artists/thinkers who break through the borders of imagination, very much like Janusz Kapusta, who recently received a Ph.D. in Art. In his unique exhibition, Kapusta goes beyond both the mathematic theory and fine art to create what has been called “broken logic.”
K-Dron is an eleven-sided spatial form with unique optical, acoustical and structural properties. Discovered by Kapusta in 1985, and patented in 1987, the K-Dron is the geometrical form defined by its complexity and subtlety.
“K” is the eleventh letter of the alphabet; GK-EDRON means “surface” in Greek. K-Dron is both a remarkably simple and complex structure. Its basic form has a square base, 11 multifaceted sides and a diamond-shaped face with a 45-degree angle of inclination. Viewed from above, it is a square within a square. The surface structure is both symmetrical and asymmetrical, concave and convex.
Jay Kappraff, professor of mathematics at the New Jersey Institute of Technology, has called Kapusta “an unusual designer who succeeded in transforming his passion for philosophy into a fascinating and versatile structure which he calls the K-Dron, a new form of fundamental importance that breaks the symmetry in the infinite space stretching both above it and below it.”
There are four ways to introduce a new geometrical shape: scientific, artistic, functional and symbolic. The exhibition in the Gershwin Hotel is exclusively devoted to K-Dron as art and is sure to generate attention that rivals its extraordinary properties.
