After building a relatively large number of tried and tested icosahedra and octahedra, which so far exceeded the demand by far, I went back to the fun of exploring other shapes and build methods. Floating Spell is an adapted pentagonal prism, with the top struts connecting across the center.

|Five Elements (30 strut tensegrity icosahedron)|
12 Meridians belongs to the recycling projects among my latest explorations. After deploying the centrally joined corner tendons, I rebuild a dodecahedron with black and white struts, which failed to impress me in its first incarnation.

|Balanced Infinity (12 strut tensegrity cube)|
|Star Icosa (30 strut tensegrity icosahedron)|
Redfaced Revisited is another recycling project. The original Redfaced had transparent elastic tendons, It has a cuboctahedral shape (Vector Equilibrium), and handles nicely.
