Assignment: Using only dowels and string, suspend a 1"-diameter steel ball 15" off the floor.
Soaked and curved the dowels to create a structure that would compress down to 15 inches.
Assignment: Using dowels, string, and paint (optional), create a system that sets the steel ball in motion.
White acrylic gesso was used to outweigh the ball from the opposite end of the seesaw to set it in motion.
Assignment: Use wire to demonstrate gravity.
Created a pile of wire with a flat bottom that, when suspended, paralleled the flat top of the table.
Competition: Design a self-sustained system that after launch must stay suspended for as long as possible.

Final Assignment: Create a series of three using paper, wood, cordage, and/or cloth.
To embody the cyclic nature of three, I made cordage out of wood, cloth out of cordage, and wood out of cloth.
