Polystix Blog Bibliography

Figure 130: Polystix.

As we near the end of this topical survey of polystix modeling, I want to emphasize the open-ended nature of these modeling projects, and that problem-solving does not always require a straight forward path or defined ending (divergent versus a convergent approach).

Polystix modeling projects offer many opportunities for understanding and designing space. Symmetric arrangements made with linear elements can be expanded in infinite directions, both geometric and atheistic. Developing familiarity with polystix can be a fun way to learn some mathematics and sculpture design, and is also useful in the development and understanding of: tensegrity, geodesics, kinematics, deployable structures, complex symmetric weaving, linked spirals, connected lattice paths, periodic nets, links, and knots, material design, liquid crystals, rectilinear chemistry, minimal surfaces, and advanced puzzle solving and design, to name just a few possible applications.

I plan on taking a short hiatus from this blog to focus on some other projects. However, I may return to update the blog with novel discoveries and introduce new questions, as I develop level specific lesson plans and new polystix art works. The best place to keep up with my related research and art work is on social media, instagram.com/andurielstudios, and my website.

I value all of the feed-back from interested readers and appreciate those of you that have stuck along this far. I hope this polystix blog and papers, [10], [11], help promote an appreciation and enjoyment of polystix and the possibilities within mathematics and the arts.
