A big inspiration for my artistic projects is being able to create special experiences for others. The Polyhedra Party Kickstarter's theme of Make Look Learn let me share of sharing the fun of making polyhedra, looking a fascinating photos, and learning about geometric shapes.
Make your own geometric shapes.
Backers could color and construct their own polyhedra with a new version of Cubes and Things: Net Book #3 Color Symmetries. Along with the print version, I made a PDF showing how to use color to highlight particular symmetries of the polyhedra.
Look at beautiful images.
This gorgeous art book is filled with photos showing the dynamic nature of polyhedra.
Learn about the symmetric connections between shapes.
The 'Introduction to Polyhedra' chapter explains the beautiful relationships of the forms through fun diagrams and easy to read text.
