Radial fin symmetry “This structure is normally only used in industrial processes, purely for a purpose: to pull heat from an object and disperse it evenly in order to keep that object from overheating. My roommate has a motorcycle, and the engine has this kind of heat sink. You also see it a lot in contemporary LED bulbs, which often have radial fins built in, and I’m trying to make that more familiar in the aesthetic realm. I get turned on by the way manufacturers make things without any clue as to the impact they’re going to have on how our environments look.”
