Structure Research

Experimenting with the cut-out pleated style I worked on in the workshop
led me to look at the structure of electricity pylons which is based on repetition
and symmetry.

I then went to look at how this simple structure creates strength whilst appearing
fairly delicate and is used in old-fashioned roller coasters and ferris wheels.

Pylon Primary Research...

This is a picture I took of a pylon in the field behind my house. I find the structure of the pylons interesting, how they don't appear that strong because they don't have a solid structure yet the way the angles at which the metal is joined gives it strength.

When viewed from a distance the pylon appears faint.
