ZomeTool sculpture - Denver Art Museum - side view

Zometool sculpture at Denver Art Museum

We finally made it back to the Denver Art Museum (which easily deserves a couple of days to see the neat collection there) and made a bee-line for the newly installed Zometool creation in the downstairs lobby next to the gift store.
I wrote most recently about this geometric sculpture in this earlier blog post. It was fun to see this splendid geometric model in person! πŸ™‚ The photos above show the sculpture face on (upper photo), and edge-on (lower photo).
Zometool is a great complement to, and ideal model building system for the designs in Sacred Geometry Design Sourcebook.

Cymaglyphs

Jeff Volk – Cymatics and water presentation

Jeff Volk of CymaticSource – carrying on the pioneering Cymatics work of Hans Jenny – will give a live presentation on Cymatics and water at The Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts on Earth Day, Sunday, April 22, 2012.

Fellow geometer and engineer Adam Reed has worked with several others to develop an amazing instrument, the Cymaglyph which produces stunningly beautiful Cymatic imagery (both still and video) which the photos above represent.

Patterns in Nature is a lovely 8-minute audio-visual reverie in nature close-up photography; you’ll spot the abundant geometric metaphors and fractals, probably without having to look for them. (Produced and photographed by Trevor Barrett Music by Rob Whitesides-Woo, Music produced by Jim Moeller and Rob Whitesides-Woo)

Doug Craft’s Convergence of Photography, Collage and Music has a bit of retro eclectic art with a bit of golden proportions and fractals.

Adrian Rossiter has an updated version of his Antiprism Polyhedron Modelling Software which enables one to create, transform, analyze, and visualize polyhedra. Here are a few neat geometric models he’s made with his software.

Our original Sacred Geometry Tutorial page has a new Haitian Creole translation by Web Geek Science. If you know of other translations, or someone who would like to make one, please let me know.
