Marcelo Pars maintains a comprehensive website on tensegrity and builds many tensegrity models.
Innovative tensegrities with multiple tension elements, semi-circles and circlesEdit
He experiments with many important innovations such as differently sized length struts, multiple tension elements, curved struts in the form of semi-circles, and joining circles with tension members. His website features many photographs of his creations, as well as references to his correspondence with Kenneth Snelson.
A few of the tensegrities invented and build by Marcelo Pars:
All of these tensegrities can be found on his website (English and Dutch): www.tensegriteit.nl
Pars has posted some videos of his models, below.
Stretching and conforming tensegritiesEdit
Pars took a 4 strut unit and repeated it 24 times to create a tensegrity wall. He then removed 12 of these modules (48 struts) and curled the wall into a ball. Below, an image of the wall, and a video of the ball.
