Mathematical Sculpture Collection
Aluminum Disks Operad, Figure 1
Alex J. Feingold, Binghamton University--SUNYFollow
Disks were cut out of a central disk so that any subdisk is a proper subset of any disk that contains it.
Sculpture was fabricated to design by a local company, Crowley Fabrication, Inc., using a water jet cutter.The design of the sculpture was setup so the cut out disks would be able to rotate on an axis inside the space they occupy, and the axis is setup to be completely adjustible within that space. The piece required a groove to be cut on the inside wall of the cut out space, so that two spring-loaded watch pins, those used to hold a watch band in place, placed in holes drilled in the walls of the disk, would form the axes.
