CD Construction at University of Seville
At the University
in October 2008, I organized this CD sculpture constructon.
The hanging one is finished, but we lacked parts to finish the second
one, on the floor.
The participants first made sketches of the truncated icosahedron.
Then CDs are connected together using cable ties, following the pattern
in the drawing.
Each assembly corresponds to one pentagon of a truncated icosahedron.
The modules are joined together, using additional CDs as edges and
suspended on string.
We had enough participants to assemble two constructions in parallel.
When done, the angles can be adjusted to make the polygons more regular.
We hung one up in a stairwell. Instructions are online here
The event was written up in Spanish blogs here
, and here
There are more photos on Flicker here
I also brought some puzzles. Above are screw-together polyhedra,
This is a paper puzzle with twenty pieces. It is pretty tricky to
assemble. See here
And here is a paper puzzle design with twelve parts.
Above is the solution. It is a paper version of this puzzle
And here is a completed paper puzzle with thirty parts, described here
In addition, I gave some blurry lectures
And I had a great time with lots of
