Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to introduce the cybernetics audience to the fundamental interdisciplinary concept of hyperseeing and its application to hypersculptures.

Design/methodology/approach

Briefly, hyperseeing is seeing from multiple viewpoints in a very general sense. In particular, the author first discusses hyperseeing a sculpture. A sculpture is defined as an object in a fixed position relative to a horizontal plane (base, ground). Two sculptures are congruent if they consist of the same object. A hypersculpture is a set of congruent sculptures. A hypersculpture is a more complete presentation of the sculptural possibilities of an object.

Findings

A specific example is given of hyperseeing a knot sculpture made of copper tubing.

Originality/value

The paper demonstrates how the study of hypersculptures facilitates gaining a deeper understanding and appreciation of sculpture.
