    I ♥ mathematics {platonic solids garland}

    Oooh….it’s been I while since I last posted. We had a smashing Christmas and new year. Hope you all did too! My computer died just before Christmas and it’s taken my hubby and I a while to bring it back to life…which is why it’s been a bit quiet. I lost 3 months worth of …

      Be Different...Act Normal: Polyhedron Garland [Printable Platonic Solids]

    • Leigh Krauser

      ****Mini Eco is an UK mommy blog with a penchant for featuring colorful DIY tutorials, and one of the recent projects on there cleverly used platonic solids to make a decorative garland. The geometric shapes are lovely to look at in their symmetry, and she even includes the templates to each object so that you can print them out yourself.

      Paper garland 'platonic solids' from Maths made pretty!

    • Alyssa Capozziello

      A fun paper craft, a painless lesson in symmetry and mathematics, an easy way to introduce a pop of color, and an excuse to say the word dodecahedron. What's not to love about this DIY garland comprised of Platonic solids.

    2^9 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 = 512 dots, arranged in cubes. 2x2 dots arranged in cubes, arranged in 2x2 meta-cubes, arranged in 2x2 meta-cubes. With this, Geometry Daily goes on a hiatus. Yes, I will pause posting. Instead of doing even more graphics, I would like to go deeper. 512 graphics is a lot of material and some ideas demand more attention and want to go elsewhere, on paper, shirts and how-knows. The about page, the shops, my website, they are in dire need for some cleaning up. With the normal schedule, this will never happen. So far, I will not make any commitment of when I will start posting again, but I’m pretty sure I will. The current idea is to produce more Geometry Dailies behind the scenes and then publish them again in a daily fashion in “seasons”, like in tv series. Let’s see what the future brings! Any news related to Geometry Daily will of course be posted on this tumblr and the facebook page. For everything else please follow Tilman Dette on Twitter and have a look at my old creaky blog I know for some this is a bit of a shock, sorry! Maybe get a silkscreen print, a digital print or a shirt to fill the void? You are a great audience, thank you all very much for following.! Love & Geometry! Tilman.
