Geometry: The form of thesinus curve has itself symmetry.Is possible to repeat andsame time brake the monotonyof symmetry? Sinus curve hasthe possibility to give suchpatterns by rotation in 3 axes.The results depend only fromthe quantity of the modulusand the way you assemblethem. The pattern can be endlesslyor totally predictable.Connections: The problem wasto finding a way for movementand rotation in 3 axes; a flexibleconnection that will supportthe weight of the othersmodulus and at the same timewill not influence the form ofthe modulus. A round (+180˚)railway system allows a moveto 2 axes and same time supportsa big construction.Scale: The size of the modulusmust from one hand generatea certain visual complexity andfrom them other hand states itsexistence at space. Differentscales of the modulus willprovoke different and oppositefeelings and optical effects.With the chosen scale of 1:6 toan average human height(1.80m) is possible to createendless networks of motifsawall dimaki angeliki norway fall 2004
