Canadian artist JJ Levine’s photo series Alone Time is a project in which he transforms one model into two different genders. “By doubling a single body within one frame, I celebrate the human capacity for gender fluidity and call into question the idea of authenticity of gender.”

John Whitney-Permutations (1966)

"In PERMUTATIONS, each point moves at a different speed and moves in a direction independent according to natural laws’ quite as valid as those of Pythagoras, while moving in their circular field. Their action produces a phenomenon more or less equivalent to the musical harmonies. When the points reach certain relationships (harmonic) numerical to other parameters of the equation, they form elementary figures."- John Whitney

Triple Gear - Henry Segerman

If you take three ordinary gears and put them together so that each gear meshes with the other two, then none of the gears can turn because neighbouring gears must turn in opposite directions. Triple gear avoids this problem by having the three “gears” arranged like linked rings - the gears then rotate along skew axes, and the opposite direction rule no longer applies.

The Dual Half 120- and 600-Cells - Henry Segerman
 The 120-cell and 600-cell are shown, which have 120 dodecahedral facets and 600 tetrahedral facets respectively. The left and right objects are dual to each other, which means that the vertices of one correspond to the 3-dimensional facets of the other, and vice versa. This is illustrated in the center object, which is simply copies of the two other objects occupying the same space, interlinking with each other.
