Bow is an asymmetric tensegrity, based on the principles discovered by Buckminster Fuller and Kenneth Snelson in 1960’s.
I was inspired by the mythology of Diana the Huntress. A sculpture of Diana is in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, by Joseph Nollekens (1778), but unfortunately Diana has lost her bow! Therefore, I have created a very special bow for her.
