Unfolding of Spherical Surfaces. Make paper sphere models with approximate patterns.
This patterns are really wonderful. Because, determining how to unfold a polyhedron or a sphere into a net is tricky.
For example, determining how to unfold a polyhedron, cuts cannot be made along all edges that surround a face or the face will completely separate. Furthermore, for a polyhedron with no coplanar faces, at least one edge cut must be made from each vertex or else the polyhedron will not flatten. In fact, the edges that must be cut corresponds to a special kind of graph called a spanning tree of the skeleton of the polyhedron (Malkevitch). Source.

Exhibition Tuesday!

Christopher Russell created Bees for Sunset Park, a cast bronze permanent art installation at the 9th Avenue station on the D line in Brooklyn. Designing two sets of gates and finials for the fences surrounding the historic station, Russell focused on the image of the bee, referencing the station as a kind of beehive and center of activity with individuals darting in and out. Opening this Thursday July 31st , Russell’s work will be featured at the Independent Art Projects, a new collaborative 2,500 square-foot art space in the MASS MoCA complex in North Adams, MA. Running until September 21st, the exhibition will include work from his most recent project, After the Golden Age, comprised of historic European decorative art references.

にんじんしりしりを作ろうと思っていましたが途中でサラダに大変身。
しりしりしたにんじん(もしくはやや太めの千切りにんじん)にかいわれと小さいツナ缶を油ごと混ぜ合わせて、三杯酢にごま油・練りからし・すりごまを混ぜたつゆをかけて混ぜます。20分くらい冷蔵庫で休ませてしんなりしてきたころが頃合です。とても!とても!おいしいです。
