Introduction to XColony
XColony Cyber Station - Galley is a kinetic sculpture made out of paper
Four pyramids and one octahedral core are arranged together into a larger pyramid. Inspired by the 2D Sierpinski triangle fractal, this XColony construction can be assembled and dissembled for fun or for investigating geometric properties. Without the core, the iterative process initiated by the Fractal is showing that doubling the side length will only increase its volume by 4 (2^2) instead of the expected value of 8 (2^3). This illustrates the concept of Hausdorff dimension.
