Old Faithful Inn (Cuboctahedron)

by tagermer

My latest photographic sculpture is this cuboctahedron with the panorama taken in the lobby of the Old Faithful Inn in Yellowstone National Park. A cuboctahedron (see Wikipedia page) has six squares and eight equilateral triangles.  You can think of it as a truncated cube, where you flatten each of the corners until they intersect. Or, you can think of it as the intersection of a cube and a octahedron. Either way, it is pretty cool!

This piece will be on display at the Art League of Germantown’s Winter Glow 2017 show at BlackRock Center for the Arts, November 1 – 5, 2017.

Materials: Photographic prints, medium density fiberboard, epoxy, and decoupage medium.
