RECIPROCAL MODEL / EXPERIMENT THREE
Our model features the assembling of reciprocal units whose sticks-line structures are based upon transegrity (tensile integrity). Each unit is built upon 4 identical wooden sticks forming a stand through compressing one another in the middle with 12 tied fishing line segments connecting the heads of each stick to frame a twisted cube. Continuous tensile force from lines act on the series of compression among sticks, reciprocally operating to construct a balanced, stable unit. Based on units, variations are created via connecting them, either through tension or compression from additional wires or through the compression between sticks against one another.
