A Workshop on Stellation Inspired Sculpture

  title={A Workshop on Stellation Inspired Sculpture},
  author={Eve Torrence},
In this workshop we will study the structure of some of the complex and beautiful sculptures by George Hart. Knowledge of the geometric concept of stellation is fundamental to understanding how these sculptures are designed and constructed. We will learn how stellation is used to produce complex polyhedra. The author has designed a simple puzzle sculpture kit based on this concept. Each participant will assemble one of these kits. Constructing and studying this small sculpture will enhance the…

A Workshop on Making Modified Truncated Icosahedra Using 4D Frame
This workshop will show how to make modified truncated icosahedra using 4D Frame tubes with some patterns that are the shadows of four dimensional polyhedra in three dimensions and which excited the curiosity and imagination.


Sculpture form Symmetrically Arranged Planar Components
The extended face planes of symmetric polyhedra form a set of interconnected canvases that can be used as the basis for a wide range of sculptural forms. A special-purpose software tool is described
Sculpture Puzzles
A series of novel sculpture-puzzles is illustrated, with mathematical explanation. Each consists of a set of identical parts that snap together into a symmetric form. The parts are flat, so they can
Modular Kirigami
Modular Kirigami is here defined as the symmetric assemblage, with artistic intent, of multiple copies of cut paper shapes. Intricate examples with icosahedral symmetry are presented. These consist
