Contraction & Distortion

4ft x 4ft x 4 ft, Wood, string & metal, 2016

 The configuration of the structure made by the pieces of woods connected with elastic strings, which is contracted and distracted when the stretching or compressing force is released, forms to the direction of minimizing energy spatially.
 According to the shape of the unit piece made by wood, it is arranged to bend or twist at a certain angle, not as a straight line after the elastic force is applied to the structure. So the structure becomes distorted and interesting spaces are created by the physical properties of the unit piece.
