Mini Post-It Menger Sponge

OK, so, it’s a level 3 approximation of a Menger Sponge, actually, incorporating 8,000 unit cubes, each of which starts as one-sixteenth of a “mini” size Post-It. Its creator, Nicholas Rougeux, likes Post-Its for this work because they “offer surprisingly [sic] structural durability and are easy to get in large quantities making them ideal for assembling structures like these.”

Tons of cool WIP shots in Nicholas’ Flickr set. He cites the work of Dr. Jeannine Mosely as inspiration. [via Boing Boing]
