Seals is an experimental geometric sculpture, about 28 inches in diameter.

The parts are somewhat seal-shaped, made of laser-cut and laser-etched wood, with beveled edges where they join.

Sixty components need to be joined with cable ties to make the complete sculpture.

I led this assembly activity at the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics at Stony Brook University.

Several people can work on it at the same time from different directions.

It took a half hour or more to get everything together.  (In the background you can see Dragons, which we built first.)

After completing it, I took the parts to Google Headquarters in Mountain View, CA,
where it is now on display after I led a group of people to build it at the 2014 SciFoo Camp.
