Glimpses of the Invisible

Glimpses of the invisible

Created using Stella 4d, available here, by multiple stellations of a black icosidodecahedron, rendered as a rotating figure, against a black background.

Icosidodeca

To create the octagonal mandalas, I used Geometer’s Sketchpad and MS-Paint. I then projected them onto the faces of an all-but invisible icosidodecahedron, and created this rotating .gif image of it, using Stella 4d: Polyhedron Navigator, software you can try for free, right here.

Without even checking, I know that my automatic tweet about this post (as @RobertLovesPi) will be retweeted by the @HexagonBot on Twitter. Why? Because @HexagonBot retweets any tweet containing the word “hexagon,” or “hexagons.” I have absolutely no idea why other polygons lack their own Twitterbots, though.
