Tensegrity Large Scale Sculptures

In class today we started cutting and painting the struts for our tenesgrity sculptures.

If you missed today we established a size criteria and it was decided to do the tensegrity model that used six struts.

These will be assembled together to create a large installation sculpture in our school!
