"Geometry Playground" Exhibit (Image 6)

June 26, 2012
"Polyhedra," a specially commissioned artwork by Stacy Speyer for the "Geometry Playground" exhibit at the Exploratorium. The large, colorful shapes--constructed of metal and suspended within reach--invite both handling and contemplation by viewers. Developed by the San Francisco Exploratorium, "Geometry Playground" is a fully interactive exhibition that includes over twenty exhibits and specially commissioned artworks. With "Geometry Playground," visitors use their hands, their bodies and their minds to explore what for most has been only a textbook subject. The exhibition was funded by the National Science Foundation (grant DRL 06-10436) and the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation. Further information about the exhibit is available Here.
