I've seen pictures of carbon buckyballs, but this doesn't have the right amount of facets for that, so the best I could come up with is Lattice. and Protocol, because that sounds science-y :)

freezer paper stencils, paintstick.
a light center and darker outer ring-
now I cut out the lattice part, fuse it on top of the stenciled batik and then comes some balls- this time out of Evolon-
