Milwaukee Downtown Lightfield by HYBYCOZOWhat do math, science, art, and natural phenomena have in common?

These are the inspirations of HYBYCOZO, a collaborative studio that creates geometric sculptures. HYBYCOZO, or Hyperspace Bypass Construction Zone, celebrates the inherent beauty of geometric form and pattern, and composes them in ways that harmonize the experience of sculpture, light, and shadow.The sculptures are 3D shapes, called polyhedrons, which are made out of polygons.

Lightfield by HYBYCOZO is heading to Cathedral Square Park this January. You’ll be able to find the amazing sculptures, eight ground sculptures and 16 hanging lanterns, starting January 19 until May 5.
