Construction Guide- Icosahedron

The icosahedron is a platonic solid. Platonic solids are 3-dimensional shapes the sides of which (also known as 'faces') all have the same shape. The icosahedron has 20 faces, each a triangle. In the version I made, shown below, I stylized the icosahedron by curving the faces and adding an inner line. Read on to learn how to make this shape.

'Capturing Impermanence' Calendar

This is a 12"x12" calendar containing 12 beautiful photos that tell the story of the evolution of my artwork from when it began 10 years ago to where it is today. This is the most economical way to have twelve 8"x12" images on your walls. It is a date-less calendar, only containing a weekday grid. Thus it can work for any year. See here for a gallery of the images in the calendar.

The Art of Being: Nature and Transformative Art-making [Dec 6, San Franisco]

The Art of Being Human: Portals



The Art of Being Human outings are a series of intentional group art-making, each focusing on and exploring a different and pertinent aspect of human embodiment based on what is juicy in the collective. These are explorations in the fundamental beauty and tension of spirit in form that is the human experience, using the vehicle of creative expression via Andres's magical beach art and collaboration with the Earth and each other, with facilitation from Lawrence Kampf and Andres Amador.
'Portal' 2007, Stinson Beach, CA

The theme for this next outing: "Portals"

We'll explore individual and collective experience of Portals. What is coming through you? What are you moving through? From where are you exiting and to where are you entering? The artwork we make will reflect this theme.


2014- Dec 6: "Portals'  
When: 2-5p
Where: Daly City, CA
Cost: $75 with limited partial and full Scholarships available
Registration and details
-----------------------------------
Bring who you are, no other experience necessary. Andres and Lawrence will begin with an introduction of the work, lead centering exercises and meditations (breathing and movement) leading into a group discussion of the day's theme. There will be an opportunity to share your own experience - verbally or silently. The day will culminate in the collective creation of a large scale beach art design and the inevitable erasure by nature and the tides.
Location Note: location is being determined- most likely near Daly City (5 minutes from SF)

Lawrence Kampf is a mindfulness and embodiment guide. Lawrence's website and mailing list.





Andres Amador is an artist who leads large-scale group art-makings. Andres' website and mailing list.
