K. Snelson 의 텐세그리티

K. Snelson은 Tensegrity 모델을 만들었다. 1927년에 태어난 아티스트로 벅민스터 풀러와 함께 작업한 적도 있다. 
아티스트가 현재의 구조물의 기본 원형을 만들었다는 것은 사실 믿기지 않을 일이다.
Tension+ Integrity 를 합친 단어의 약어가 텐세그리티다. 

예전에 텐세그리티의 문제는 한번 적은 적이 있었기 때문에 
이번에는 스넬슨의 홈페이지를 소개해 본다.

스넬슨은 물건을 짜서 만드는 것이 텐세그리티 영감의 시작이라고 보았다. 
참고로 이 이론의 응용범위는 너무 광범위하다.
궁금한 사람이 있다면 위키피디어의 tensegrity의 링크부터 읽어도 충분하다. 

Weaving, Mother of Tensegrity

About Weaving

The ancient invention of weaving reveals in a direct way the basic and universal properties of natural structure such as modularity, left and right helical symmetry, and elementary structural geometry.

Two and only two fundamental fabric weave structures exist: the standard two-way plain weave forming squares and the three-way triangle/hexagon weave seen most often in basketry. Though there are many variations such as criss-crossing and doubling, etc., these two are the only primary forms.

A single weaving event, passing one thread over another, creates a mini-structure: two filaments crossing and in contact with one another, each warping the other where they press in contact. Bypasses, crosses and Xs have become powerful symbols and signs: a Christian cross, skull and crossbones, crossed fingers, Xd out, sign here, "keep out". When two objects cross one another, two axes are created along the diagonals; one has a right-handed, clockwise helix and the other a left-hand or counterclockwise helix. This, along with magnetism with its north and south polarities, electrons and positrons, is the very root of binariness. This duality which occurs at every crossing teaches the first lesson about the nature of structure. The helical phenomenon plays a vital role in determining how things get connected together.
