Tensegrity

I feel pretty tense

Tensegrity

Mixed media, 2015

Tensegrity is a mixed media sculpture series. Multiverse is the progeny of Tensegrity. This word is actually an architectural term that refers to alternating compression mechanisms that give a structure balance. I'm using it in a social/cultural context. I like talking about social inequities but also referencing environmental factors, showing moments of balance, as well as pain and discomfort.
