EQUILIBRIUM MODEL / EXPERIMENT ONE

In this project, we explored the concept of tensegrity by arranging a series of triangular shapes in various formations using wires to maintain equilibrium. We used 1/8th plywood to cut out the triangular pieces and the wire to make adjustments to the tension in the lines. Overall, most of our model variations assume the shape of a bounding box with half of the geometry creating the illusion that it is floating above the base geometry.
