Folding Circles

Each of these spheres demonstrates that
triangles form where great circles meet.
The elements used to make these sculptures began as flat circles. "Children in school should be folding circles as often as they are drawing them." says sculptor Bradford Hansen-Smith who has combined art with geometry and traveled the world conducting workshops to people of all ages. He has received three patents on transformational movement systems (See definition of transformational geometry at "Fun with Geodesics"). Visit to see many of his circle based sculptures, circle folding tutorials and a more detailed explanation about the wholemovement approach to geometry.
