A dialogue between geometry and the order of our cosmos, an artistic exploration of the boundaries of the infinite.

This book offers new approaches to the stunning artworks of Eduardo Terrazas with the premise that geometry belongs to everyone. Five well-known authors present a multidisciplinary vision on the artist’s series “Possibilities of a Structure.” This highly colorful and playful series—of which “Cosmos” is a subseries—has been an ongoing project since 1974 and comprises more than 590 works. Terrazas has explored a lifetime’s worth of questions about the nature of the universe through the microcosm of his images. His work suggests at once a curiosity about the fabric of our universe and a profoundly human hope for an underlying rationality behind the chaos of the world. His visual reflections derive from a geometric language and a technique inspired by the Huichol tablas, from a Mexican indigenous tribe.
 
Eduardo Terrazas is a founding figure of Mexican contemporary art, known for his experiments with geometrical form and adaptations of Mexican craft techniques to contemporary art.
