New York artist, Leo Villareal, combines the realms of art and mathematics with his latest work titled, BUCKYBALL. Inspired by the work of Buckminster Fuller, the 30 foot sculpture will feature two nested, geodesic sculptural spheres comprised of 180 LED tubes arranged in a series of pentagons and hexagons, known as a “Fullerene.” The light sequences created by the BUCKYBALL is said to trigger impulses in the brain, causing the audience to identify specific patterns.
We happen to walk by the luminous work of art earlier this week and caught a little footage of its hypnotizing light patterns. Feel free to stop by Madison Square Park to Villareal’s work, BUCKYBALL made its debut on October 25th and will be there until February 1st, 2013–the park has even provided seating for those who wish to do a little more than “stop by.”
This New York City native breathes the concrete jungle. From be a stylist and clothing designer who’s pieces has graced the silhouettes of fashionistas and socialites alike, to running the streets to get the next story, Bim Star has made his name synonymous as the catalyst of the “urban-sophisticate” style in this new global world and has since strengthened his thumbprint in the industry.
Always in the know, and the go-to man for all things ala mode, we are happy to have Bim Star aboard this blazing ship as our CEO and webmaster.
