Imagine, Geometry - tetrahelix

These pages are to give flight to your imagination. A tetrahelix is a string of tetrahedrons as defined by Buckminster Fuller. This is a funky one made of pipe-cleaners, which are wires covered with fuzzy material. The edges are curved because of what it is to become.

See it twirling in space:

See it building, one side at a time:

Here is a page of notes on Buckminster Fuller's tetrahelix info and Bucky's tetrahelical DNA modeling. See tetrahedron.
