This work the 3rd version of a research project "Sentient Architecture project" in collaboration with my artscience colleague Lyndsey Housden since December 2008. We research flexible materials which create the certain structure in a moment and the structure itself transfers by humans action or even by small change of the space condition. That causes organic structures sentimentally.

Through this research, creating sceneries of sentient structures by pure materials, we found in those activities of making momental structure by elastics, there is similar idea to psychological "gardening".

<triangle grid system>
For this project, I have made 57.7cm triangle grid system which you can create elastic constructures more even.

<ceiling height 8m>
Fortunatelly(unfortunately), the space had the height of 8m!!, so that fixing elasttics we had to go up to the ceiling by the scaffold!
