This applet is based on my friend Michelle Fornabai's sculpture.
Her sculpture is made from 12 acrylic strips, grouped into 6 pairs.
Each pair is bent in 6 places and the two strips in a pair
meet at the top and bottom in a certain way. The sculpture
is on exhibit at the Whitney museum in New York
The applet lets the user manipulate a pair of virtual strips
subject to the general parameters of Michelle's sculpture.
I designed the thing on a really fast computer, so it might run
slowly on some machines. It's supposed to have
"instantaneous response" to mouse clicks and drags.
Michelle and I hope to redesign the thing so that
is looks more stylish.
