Oh, The Weather Outside Is Frightening

As part of a new project on which I'm working - "Cold Genius" - I needed to draw a LOT of snowflakes in Rhino, which is possible using a 30:60:60 degree triangle and cutting out chunks, then duplicating and mirroring it and rotating copies around an axis.

I have received an email from the curator of this show asking me very specifically to remove the erroneous information from the blog entry and to remove any details about the misunderstanding too.… Continue
