Collective Artists -- Citizen Art

Collective Citizen Art Project
Collaborative Research Centre, Discretization in Geometry and Dynamics
artists from all over the world

In our citizen art project "Polytopia -- Adopt a Polyhedron" we aim to realize models of all combinatorial types of polyhedra and to engage the general public in the process of doing math through art. The participants of the project "Adopt a Polyhedron", give it a name and build a model from a paper template. In the next step they can build their own artistic model from a material of their choice. Pictures of these models are uploaded to our website where a gallery of the polyhedra forms.
