    Nonsense... there are little points (and little rounds) all over the place. But what's THE point? <G>

    It's creativity for creativity's sake. Why does there need to be a point?

    Woodworker Keith Williams of Oddball Gallery in Minier, Illinois creates geodesic spheres that balance math and art. Each sculptural form is created from 170 wood triangles that are then hand-assembled into 12 pentagons and 20 hexagons. Next these shapes are glued together into an angular 180-sided ball that is placed onto a lathe and transformed into a completely smooth sphere.
    As Williams removes approximately 1/4″ of wood, natural rings from the plywood are brought to the surface, covering the final piece in a dizzying array of concentric circles.

    Yes. Of course others may disagree. If there is no 'next', I'd regard is simply as a mildly interesting exercise - which paves no new pathways - with a slightly frumpy result.

    Actually - it looks to me to be a 'proof of concept'. A rough draft. The mis-registration is meant to be ignored.

    I could, however, see the same process being used with different materials with a lovely result, and to good purpose. For one obvious example - as a lamp shade. Use thinner stock, and either grind it thin enough to allow for translucence... or leave it thicker/opaque and cut some interesting slots/piercings after the fact.

    Right the essence of art is its uselessnes, it's art, it's a painting hang it from the wall and look at it.

    I can't explain this very well, maybe ther are others that can do it better.

    My point is that art doesn't have to prove anything.

    Anyway that's my 2 cents.
    Don't worry I'm happy
