The name of this installation is Buckys on the Channel. I will be creating Buckyballs out of pool noodles that will be anchored to the channel bottom. 

A Buckyball is nickname for a geometric shape called a truncated icosahedron. It has 32 faces made up of hexagons and pentagons. Richard Buckminster Fuller popularized this shape in his Geodesic domes and architecture. This shape is universally appears in design, art, math, science, medicine, technology and play. All of these attributes are come to life in our Fort Point neighborhood.
