It's all about perspective!

Jonty Hurwitz forms seemingly abstract sculptures. However, do not fret! You do not need to be an art critic to understand the "deeper" meaning of his intense artwork. All you need is a cylindrical mirror and its form can be easily translated.

His process?
 "The Binge Thinking Collection is my study on the physics of how we perceive space. Each piece is the stroke of over 1 billion calculations and draws upon a unique way in which our brains interpret the spacial information they receive. I usually start by expressing a concept using mathematical tools, often involving billions of calculations and many months of preparation. I then explore ways to manifest these formulae in the physical world. Each piece is both an engineering and artistic challenge. The mediums I have worked with are perspex, steel, resin, powder, copper and acrylic."[source]

He also plays with perspective in other ways.
