New York-based fashion collective threeASFOUR’s latest project, MER KA BA, is an otherworldly installation that fuses avant-garde couture, architecture and video projections. Inspired by sacred geometry and tile patterns found in synagogues, churches and mosques around the world, the exhibition draws heavily on classical geometry and the Platonic solids.
In that creative spirit, the Ball of Whacks consists of 30 magnetic design blocks that can be rearranged into endless different shapes — including the beautiful 30-sided rhombic triacontahedron. It's essentially a more dynamic, 3D puzzle. The Ball of Whacks comes with a 96-page illustrated creativity guidebook that provides you with tips, stories, exercises and insights into the creative process. Each individual piece of the Ball of Whacks is a "golden ratio" rhombic pyramid. Held in place by 180 rare earth magnets, these design blocks fit together to form a perfect 30-sided rhombic triacontahedron — geometry's most beautiful shape. Suitable for creatives of all ages, and kids 8+.
