2 20th + 21st Century Polyhedra-Based Sculpture Freed from constraints of representation and figurative form, sculptors in the 20th century began to explore spatial concepts of “pure form”. Platonic solids provide one storehouse of fundamental ideas.
3 Questions to Ask for Each Object Is there an underlying polyhedral form?Geometric transformations, if anyMaterials selected (and why?)Technique:If Constructive: Assembly? Connectors?If Subtractive: Carving? Guiding process?Artistic Intent vs. Mathematical Model?How might computer technology be used?
