It's the last post of 2019! I feel like if I peer into one of these "Hexagonal Kaleidoscopes," it'll give me a glimpse of the future, even though that's not at all how kaleidoscopes (or anything, really) work. Still, it's fun to imagine. For more of this cool work, check out South Korea's Youjin Um.
Have a happy new year and I hope to see you back here in 2020!
