Fun with Buckyballs

A package of Buckyballs sits in the 1400 Gallery (my desk at the Tribune Tower). The gallery was showing an exhibit of 10 puddle jumpers curated from a list of 56 puddle jumpers from Flickr.

One of the sales people walks over and starts playing with the tiny metal magnetic balls. He puts them on top of the puddle jumpers. He quickly realizes that the magnets can be put in a string, making the people into jump rope jumpers.

What a wonderful revelation! In the orange photo, the rope is cut so it appears to go under the boy’s leg. The Buckyball jump rope really fits in well with these photos, because these are already happy photos. As if leaping over puddles wasn’t fun enough, now the people are having even MORE fun jumping rope over a puddle.

I look forward to implementing the Buckyballs into future exhibits of the 1400 Gallery.
