There’s something a bit spooky about this sculpture of nested, truncated icosahedra in Madson Square Park.  The eerie lighting and coloring brings to mind an evil, robotic Jack-o-Lantern.

When I was in high school (a billion years ago), I belonged to some after-school group that was enrichment for kids who thought they might want to be engineers. One of the sessions was about nano-technology and buckyballs. So now, when I pass by this every day, it reminds me of falling in love with math/science/engineering when I was a kid.

Thanks for the happy Monday thought!
