Material used: Wood and nylon chord.

Buckminster Fuller popularized tensegrity, lending his considerable name to this mathematical art form. It is also considered to be key in cellular structures. Tensegrity is the creation of 3D structures under tension where a discontinuous set of compression elements is opposed and balanced by a continuous tensile force. It results in the creation of some most improbable forms. I became quite engaged in making a variety of tensegrity
