RECIPROCAL MODEL / EXPERIMENT TWO
The reciprocal model continues to employ tensegrity to create positive and negative spaces. These spaces actualize in webs of repeated string that also bend the wooden strips into gestural curves. Each wooden strip is lined with holes to allow the string to pass through, distributing tensile forces across its length. The wooden strips are structural frames that reciprocally share the tensile forces of the strings that weave new spaces between them. The variations alter the orientation of the wooden strips to explore how different webs can be coordinated between varied perceptive intersections of strings. of webbed spaces.
An inversion of the intent in the previous equilibrium model, in which tensile forces were de-emphasized to create the illusion of a floating mass, this reciprocal system emphasizes both the structural integrity and spatial order of its tensile strings and their formation
