sketch_c6 - pre-taping

I'm thinking of this structure as a "parapainting," much like the parabuildings added on to New York buildings to increase the rentable square feet. (example) To make the buckyball a permanent addition I'm inlaying paper that fills the negative spaces, an idea I got from Seth Price. Eventually the paper will be taped from the back but to get it off the wall I'm joining it with temporary strips of very low-tack paper tape. The poorly cut edges of the paper will not be a problem once the strips of gummed framer's tape are applied from the back--it is a magical material that turns bad seams into beautiful ones.
