Tensegrity Sphere

Posted in Artwork by jludemann on 04/06/2010

So, while I’m getting my camera up and running to bring you current pictures of current work as it happens, I’ll go ahead and post another “Best of” piece from last year. This piece is the culmination of a years worth of study on Buckminster Fuller’s principles of synergetic/energetic systems and tensegrity structures.

The suspended piece is constructed from thirty sections of galvanized tubing, held together with nylon cord. Slightly under six-foot tall, the piece is very resilient, and takes on a springiness akin to that of a rubber ball.
