In order to make it more 'architectural', the pumping thing was put on a soil.
And... it starts to wobble around.

Image 2.8: pumping dodecahedron and icosahedron; plus their intersecting volume


  Update: 30/12/2013


On the top left: pumping icosahedron and dodecahedron.
On the top right: the intersection.
Again, three archimedean solids are involved, it morphs from dodecahedron to truncated dodecahedron to icosidodecahedron to truncated icosahedron to icosahedron.

Image 2.7: pumping cube and octahedron; and intersecting volume

  Posted: 06/12/2013


Pumping duals: cube and octahedron. The intersection of this two solids, morphs from cube to truncated cube to cuboctahedron to truncated octahedrond to octahedron. This makes two platonic and three archimedean solids.

Image 2.6: pumping tetrahedrons and their intersecting volume

  Posted: 11/12/2013


The intersection morphs from tetrahedron to truncated tetrahedron to octahedron and then back to truncated tetrahedron and tetrahedron.
