As an exploration, in extension to the Hex-Flex sculpture, I wanted to see if for all even-sided polygons, a moving pattern could be obtained. Here's a quick paper prototype of squares and links (obtained by joining every other vertex on the square. This pattern and movement works for squares and hexagons, so far. Meaning, it poses as valid proof for 4 and 6-sided polygons. Next tests lined up are for octagons.
Note: Try making your own moving squares by following these steps that involve some simple mathematics ----->>>
Note: This paper prototype was a part of a S.T.E.M. Pop-Up Exhibition in June 2021 Peabody, MA, USA.
