Appreciation towards Nick Sayers for providing the following description:
Sphere made from 270 poker playing cards slotted together (that's five packs, including jokers,
with 1,080 slots cut into them all!). The structure is based on the IQ Light system, although I
haven't seen this 270-piece configuration before.
Designed and made as part of a competition for Gcasino Brighton.
I ended up cutting the slots using a DIY bandsaw – basically a power jigsaw stuck blade-up on the
bottom of a makeshift saw bench. A whole project in itself. Pics to follow, perhaps.
