16: Subunit Show

Posted on Mar 22, 2012 by in No Limit

Here’s your chance to show off your favorite subunit. Pick one subunit. Then make something, anything, with only the subunit of your choice, and photograph your sculpture beside a single specimen of the subunit. No limit on the number of magnets used. Zen Magnets Only.

The concept of subunits are important to construction of complex structures. Subunits are the identifiable parts that make the whole. The words that make your magnet sculpture sentence. Popular subunits tend to be versitile, easily removed, with many compatible surfaces for attachment. And many are made of smaller subunits. Where the line is drawn is quite subjective.

The subunit is made of four hexagon sheets, each radius 2.


As usual, the judges will be your peers. So don’t aim simply to make the most amazing sculpture, try to take the most beautiful photo. First place gets two free zen sets, second place one free set. Zen Magnets Only for this contest, no neoballs or others allowed. Again, this is a photography contest as much as a magnet sphere contest. Everything you submit goes into the public domain. Having fun is the most important requirement. Submission deadline is the end of March.

To enter, load your photo to, and fill out the submission form:
