Become the subject of the art and see yourself through the faces of Time

We brought Alex Andre’s inter-connective art installation at this fun Yoga and music festival in Squaw valley near Lake Tahoe and had a blast off!

An even number of (at least 8) tetrahedra can be connected along their edges to form a ring in a way that allows them to be continuously rotated “inside-out” without disconnecting. Such configurations are commonly referred to as kaleidocycles. Shown above are kaleidocycles with 8, 10, and 12 tetrahedra exhibiting 4, 5, and 6-fold rotational symmetry, respectively. There has to be at least 8 tetrahedra, because any less would result in the tetrahedra colliding into each other at certain instances of the rotation. You can even make your own paper model using this guide.

Mathematica code:

`v1[t_] := {Cos[t], 0, Sin[t]}v2[t_, a_] :=  1/Sqrt[1 + Sin[t]^2 Tan[a]^2] {-Sin[t], -Sin[t] Tan[a], Cos[t]}v3[t_, a_] :=  1/Sqrt[1 + Sin[t]^2 Tan[a]^2] {-Sin[t]^2 Tan[a], 1, Cos[t] Sin[t] Tan[a]}P[t_, a_] := {v3[t, a][[2]]/Tan[a] - v3[t, a][[1]], 0, -v3[t, a][[3]]/2}Q[t_, a_] := {v3[t, a][[2]]/Tan[a], v3[t, a][[2]], v3[t, a][[3]]/2}vertices[t_, a_] := {P[t, a] - Sqrt[2]/2 v1[t], P[t, a] + Sqrt[2]/2 v1[t], Q[t, a] - Sqrt[2]/2 v2[t, a], Q[t, a] + Sqrt[2]/2 v2[t, a]}Tetrahedron[T_, t_, a_, o_] := Table[  {FaceForm[White], Opacity[o], EdgeForm[Thick],   Polygon[    Table[     T[vertices[t, a][[1 + Mod[i + j, 4]]]], {i, 1, 3, 1}]]},  {j, 0, 3, 1}]Kaleidocycle[pr_, t_, n_, o_, A_] := Graphics3D[  Rotate[   Table[    Rotate[     Table[      Tetrahedron[T, t, 2 Pi/n, o],      {T, {TransformationFunction[IdentityMatrix[4]],         ReflectionTransform[{-Sin[2 Pi/n], Cos[2 Pi/n], 0}]}}],     r*4 Pi/n, {0, 0, 1}],    {r, 0, n - 1, 1}],   A*Sin[t], {0, 1, 0}],  PlotRange -> pr, ImageSize -> 500, Axes -> False, Boxed -> False,   Lighting -> "Neutral", ViewPoint -> {0, 0, 2}, Background -> White ]Manipulate[Kaleidocycle[pr, t, n, o, A], {pr, 1.5, 50}, {t, 0, 2 Pi}, {n, 8, 16, 1},{o, 1, 0}, {{A, 0}, 0, 2 Pi}]`
