Polystyrene Orb

Via Beautiful/Decay, John Powers' Polystyrene Orb.


I'll swipe Beautiful/Decay swiping from the NODE10 catalog:

Meticulously constructed by hand, Power’s forms are constructed out of a limited formal vocabulary: Polystyrene blocks cut to a selection of preset sizes, attached to each other at 90 degree angles.

Feels to me like the antiseptic response to Chris Burden's Medusa Head. Love it.
