Back to the Future... or at least the FutureWork Institute. :) We still didn't explore a lot, but I did see another sculpture I'd missed last night — this one's called an Archimedean Spire, and appears to be a three-dimensional variation on the Archimedean spiral.
(Dec 2006) "Archimedean Spire". This is a ruled surface, that is a surface made up of straight lines. The ends at the base of the sculpture follow an Archimedean spiral, the other ends just move up the spire at a constant rate.
I never cease to be amazed by what a small world it is, too. willseg is only three hops away from me on LJ; for henryseg, it's four hops. And that's even true when restricted to mutual LJ-friendships.
As for the sculptures again, you can apparently buy them on SL here; I don't think they're on the SL marketplace, though.
