Photo. 11-1. Complex of jitterbugs: An array of alternating octahedra and vector equilibria is shown on the left; on the right, the display is undergoing the simultaneous transformation of all cells, such that octahedra are opening up to become VEs while the VEs are contracting into octahedra. The action is frozen in mid transformation, making it possible to see the icosahedral phase.
