Book, Gem, from [2,3]
This object is not part of the Cooper Hewitt's permanent collection. It was able to spend time at the museum on loan from Smithsonian Libraries and Archives as part of Saturated: The Allure and Science of Color.
Like much of Auerbach’s work, this pop-up book uses color to explore a space between two and three dimensions. Each facet of the paper gems appears a slightly different color, and reflections from the yellow page further complicate the interplay of color and form.
