This is based on the 4,2-Goldberg polyhedron where the edges have been replaced with rhombic pieces of colored corrugated plastic.
Background and Inspiration
This was the result of a hands-on mathematical art sculpture construction I led at the NYC Math Festival organized by the National Museum of Mathematics (MoMath) held on Saturday, August 18, 2018. Participants of all ages helped assemble this piece during the event.
A total of 720 rhombic-shaped corrugated plastic pieces were used in the construction. The rhombic pieces had pre-drilled holes at their corners and were connected with cable ties. Color was used to aid in the modular construction.
I am grateful for all the participants at the NYC Math Festival who helped assemble this piece!
