I’ve doubled my Pyralux pyramid with a structure of back to back pyramids in a composition of primary colors and white. Two square pyramids back to back form the platonic solid, the Octahedron. The vertices on the x, y and z axes are in black. About 30 seconds in, the camera travels inside the structure which was a surprise to me when I first saw it as it was designed from the outside and hadn’t thought about what it would look like from the inside.
