Making geometric structures from commonly-found objects can result in some interesting effects. Here, sixty bicycle reflectors are joined into a spherical geometric construction by Nick Sayers. To connect them, he drilled four holes in each and fastened them together with small cable ties.

Another example is this sphere that Sayers made from measuring tape, weaving everything in a symmetric manner.
