The way I make tensegrities is pretty much a lonely job. Silently I calculate the lengths of the struts and strings in my study. Then I go to my shed where I saw the struts. At the dining table I make all the strings and then, when everything is ready I kneel down on the carpet with all the struts and strings and put everything together. My wife and children see me doing it and wonder why I'm doing it. "It's a hobby," is the only explanation I had, but then I said to myself: Suppose you don't call it a hobby, but you call it therapy. What is it you want to learn in this therapy? What do the tensegrities tell you? And then, after all these years working on my own, I realized that tensegrities tell me that working together is difficult but it gives results that could never be achieved alone.
