TURNER, RALPH. B.1935.
Turner's original drawings for his fold-up model of Jupiter, probably Tucson, AZ, around June 1, 1971, pencil and crayon on paper, each hemisphere on a separate sheet, each 980 x 800 mm, two paper labels pasted onto one margin, inscribed in ink "These polyhedron studies made from original Jupiter globe (June 1, 1971)," framed together, waterstains.
Turner's fold-up Jupiter globe was influenced by Buckminster Fuller's geodesic form, albeit adjusted to the oblate form of the planet. The drawings were reproduced by lithography and made available to the public.
