About this artwork
This world map projection invented by the illustrious Buckminster Fuller (who also imagined the buckminsterfullerene or bucky-ball shape). It is created by mapping the globe onto a 20-sided sphere-like shape (icosahedron) and then unravelling the 20 sides and flattening them. There are many unravellings possible, but the most common, shown here, represents the earth as "one island". The projection shows relative areas better than the common Mercator projection.
