Micro Environment

IMG_0375

One of Richard Buckminster Fuller’s many projects involved the creation of the Dymaxion map of the world. Using a modified icosahedron, Fuller created a projection of the globe on which all the landmasses could be connected together, or conversely the projection could show all the oceans of the planet as one. This is a link to a small gif from wkipedia that shows the development of the pattern. I’ve started to think about the next body of work that will be exhibited this Autumn, I’m particularly interested in creating small environments within which further work (by myself or others) could take place.
