Here's the last of three little sculptures I recently made. This one's a little different from the other two, as it uses two poplar curves instead of just one. The cables that are strung between the two curves are oriented so that they create forces that act on the suspended "wing" curve in every direction. The result is that these forces cancel out and the wing curve is held solidly in place in relation to the looping curve. I made a sculpture similar to this one about a year ago, but wanted to tackle the design again with some slightly different and larger curves. Perhaps my favorite aspect of the design is the contours created by the cables, which constantly change as you move around the piece. Now if only I could figure out a way to apply this design to making something practical!
