Title:
PHI-GON

Description:
The tent poles were found on an apocalyptic festival tent site near Halle. This other types of carriers are recovered from broken down tents. the design builts up in conjunction with the other elements and the tensegrity construction principle. This forming principle creates a balance between dynamic forces and flexible angular relationships. A further supporting function of this fragile basic cohesion is the leveling out in a certain form under load. The structure grows from problems or collapse, because it can be individually repaired and improved. The connection option shown here (side table, different other connections are possible) is made with modern manufacturing processes and crafting. It is just one example of what can be held using a prototype used as a transforming idea. One idea behind my projects is that art can include the prozesses of reuse, reduce, recycle in it's making and presenting.
