A Platonic Regatta

 Unprocessed — Object: 1
Identifier: ART-2016-8-8

Content Description

"The three windsails racing down Huntington Lake exemplify the (rotational) symmetries of the Platonic solids: icosahedron/dodecahedron, cube/octahedron, and tetrahedron. The icosahedron is painted with a picture of sweet peas, the cube with a bright marigold. The tetrahedron was too twisted to paint, so I used simple primary colors. Reflections on the water are a trick of ray-tracing." Exhibition: SymmetryScapes West: an exhibition of mathematical art.
