Celestial Structures emulates the cosmos on a tangible scale through the interaction of space, light, and tetrahedral construction inspired by Alexander Graham Bell and Buckminster Fuller. With motors and code, the space evolves using randomized functions to rotate three pyramid structures comprised of reflective material. The interaction between the structures and light create a dynamic space similar to our vast universe.
