This work is based on the 2,2-Goldberg polyhedron where the edges have been replaced with rhombic pieces of colored corrugated plastic.
Background and Inspiration
A total of 360 rhombic-shaped corrugated plastic pieces were used in the construction. Twelve black black and yellow modules were constructed, then assembled into hemispheres by adding white pieces. The hemispheres were then joined to construct the final piece. Cable ties were used for connecting the pieces.
In this expanded polyhedral structure, the vertices are transformed into open triangular spaces. Similarly, the pentagonal and hexagonal faces are transformed into pentagonal and hexagonal openings respectively.
I am grateful for all the participants who helped assemble this piece!
