Completing the geodesic structure during Divine Exchange CC has lead to a continued interest in geometric solids and polygons. I’ve been making opened out developments of these solids in various materials. The one above is a development of an icosahedron, which has been modified in such a way that when flat the entire global landmass can be mapped on its surface. This particular form was created by Robert Buckminster Fuller as the Dymaxion Map. He envisaged it as a way to help alter the established perspective on the world and illustrate the way in which all the continents are connected.
