For the cardboard assignments I created two icosahedrons. This is my favorite geometric shape because of its simplicity. To make it I made an equilateral triangle and traced it onto sheets of cardboard. I used regular masking tape to assemble them. I see a lot of potential for this construction later in the class. These can be easily painted and assembled into something really interesting. Many more shapes can obviously be made with the equilateral triangles. If I were to paint them a glossy white they could be mantle decorations. I could also make a mold of them and cast beeswax into them, creating candles. I think the most over the top design would be making soap bars out of this pointy sphere.
