John Hiigli (1943-2017) died 18 October 2017.

John was an active participant and contributor to several events organized
by the Synergetics Collaborative. Much of his work concerned the Vector
Equilibrium and Isotropic Vector Matrix. Among his many contributions to
Synergetics Collaborative events, John participated in the Third Biennial
Design Science Symposium at RISD on 12 November 2011. The Synergetics
Collaborative and Victor Acevedo produced a video about the Vector
Equilibrium and Isotropic Vector Matrix including John's presentation
and some of his work at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a3c0wP2AXpo

Amy Leidtke, on the faculty at RISD and a Synergetics Collaborative Board
member, said "I knew John Hiigli through his artwork – a legacy of
pieces that expressed a passion for exploring harmony, color, geometry
and space."

Joe Clinton, a Synergetics Collaborative Board member, said "He will be
missed by us all and remaindered for his contributions to humanity."

The International Symmetry Association (ISA) has a remembrance of John
