Anyone who might attempt to build a mega-structure from such components will soon find out that they cannot be joined smoothly into harmonic patterns - unlike regular hexagons, for example.(….) the world of forms to which Gerard Caris has been devoted for almost 40 years - first as a conceptual world, speculatively put on paper, later spherically elaborated - possibly proves so difficult to grasp because the combination of pentagonal elements touches on the limitations of our familiar three-dimensional understanding of the world.“Uli Bohnen
