Your ideas for sculpture of ZigZag? Wow! / Paradoxical space

Hi Maki--

I'm not quite sure what you intend for your thesis,
 but it sure sounds interesting.

How to make a sculpture of ZigZag I just don't know,
 since ranks can loop and it has many other paradoxical

But that just gave me a new definition of "paradoxical space"--
 a paradoxical space is one which you can't put in a sculpture!

Except, with your talent, maybe you could.

It's always hard for the teacher to understand the student's
 idea for a thesis-- if it was easy to understand, the teacher
 would have thought of it already.  So please tell me more.

Best, Ted
