Malleable Matter - Stretchable Space: Interweaving Art, Math and Nature in N-Dimensionsby Rochelle Newman, Claire Belanger, Mary J. Calnan, Susan Libby
This book involves the third dimension. It brings to the emerging field of design science, a lively text filled with diagrams, drawings, and photos. Its use is as diverse as its content. Not only will teachers in the disciplines of Art, Math and Science find the information useful, but artists and designers can learn much for their work in three space. This volume begins with the manipulation of the pliable plane to create 3-d folded structures. It moves on to show how the eternal triangle is used to build stable forms. The familiar cube generates other families of rectangular solids. Also explored are the properties of the sphere and its connections to solids called polyhedra. The latter are explored in great detail.
