Made from raupo stems (bulrush) interconnected by a network of flax threads, using nature’s universal construction system known as tensegrity. None of the stems touch - they are held under compression by tension from the threads. This means the system is in total dynamic balance and stress is distributed equally throughout the system making the sculpture flexible.
