    Here are some snapshots of that work which will lend itself more readily to photographic representation. The diagram is simple: tension (rubber bands) on the inside, compresion (laminated wood) on the outside, the whole assembly creating a layering of membranes with various types of openings for...

      What a great object! Seems really photogenic, and looks fun, sitting at an odd angle on the desk.
      Is it tricky to replace the elastic bands? I can imagine that being a bit of an artform in itself. Hard to think of a cleaner way to attach them though.

      Replacement of the bands is a lot easier than one might think... if done one at a time. A bit time consuming, but necessary - actually, the main problem is finding rubber bands of the right length/stretchiness.

      Oooh! I like it, too. I wasn't convinced, but then I saw the last photo and that sold me.
