Tetrahedrons are very simple three dimensional shapes but can be magnified or shrunk to fit together. They are used to digitally map the volume of hard to measure spaces such as caverns and pockets underneath the earth’s surface. I like to use them in my work because systems such as community is difficult to measure.
We place a lot of importance on social structures such as community and our relationships to the environment yet we’re defining how we think about those things. These structures would exist regardless of whether we decide to define them. They transcend our assumptions and definitions.
