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.

Ideation & basic study plan 
The elastic structure, which stores energy applied from the outside,  attempts to be arranged in a state where free-energy density is minimized upon restoration to the original state when the external energy is removed.
This new elastic material shows deformations such as splay, twist, and bend.
First experiments of constrains and distortions with urethan form
This new material deformed by free energy density after stress and makes new distorted space.
Second experiments of constrains and distortions with woods
Third experiment of constrains and distortions with woods, it destroys initial space and makes new distorted space.
