Bucky Ball Pit
THE BUCKY BALL PIT
Buckminster Fuller was a da Vinci of the 20th century - a poet, an engineer, a futurist, a polymath. He spent his life discovering and utilizing nature’s coordinate system in order to make the world work for 100% of humanity. He found that the closest packing of spheres (or balls, if you will) revealed the underlying structure of the universe, upon which 3.8 billion years of life on earth had designed itself.
The Bucky Ball Pit is inspired by the life and work of Buckminster Fuller who peeled back the layers of the reality he was born into and looked at it from a fresh perspective. You will literally crawl inside his mind made of a geodesic dome and a ball pit, seeing the world as he saw it, but most importantly you will be inspired to do your own thinking.
We will be playing his 42-hour long lecture titled "Everything I Know" layered with ambient music. There will be lectures both planned and impromptu, books, posters, models and much much more.
Join us for the Bucky Ball Pit Workshops on Tuesday and Thursday from 4-5
“Would you like to become re-enchanted with the fundamental coordinate system of the universe?” Immerse yourself in an exploration in nature’s coordinate system. You’ll learn about simple shapes like tetrahedrons and more complex ones like the vector equilibrium. You learn the definition of Synergetics: the empirical study of systems in transformation, with an emphasis on total system behavior unpredicted by the behavior of any isolated components, including humanity's role as both participant and observer.
