Global Tetrahedral SculptureMathematics of Sculpture
This monograph contains Nystuen's calculations, actually used by Barr to position his abstract tetrahedral sculpture within the earth. Placement of the sculpture vertices in Easter Island, South Africa, Greenland, and Indonesia was chronicled in film by The Archives of American Art for The Smithsonian Institution. In addition to the archival material, this monograph also contains Arlinghaus's solutions to broader theoretical questions--was Barr's choice of a tetrahedron unique within his initial constraints, and, within the set of Platonic solids? The monograph includes a Preface by sculptor David Barr.
