Balance Bending conflates complex fabrication processes with physics computation. Defined by two input curves, the computational model calculates a series of angles and distances to ensure two realities. The first being that each rod is capable of fabrication. The second being that when composed, the rods balance each other across a single spine, thus defining a global geometry in space.
