Three struts up in the air holding by strings create a tensional integrity that allow it to stand in position. Fluorescent fishing lines have been used to connect the struts and act as prestressed tensioned members to hold the structure from failure. The ultraviolet light from both ends of each strut illuminate the fishing lines to form a few linear lights all around the struts.
It is a sculpture-like lighting that integrates the principle of tensegrity and lights. At the same time, it utilizes the characteristic of the materials to form an interesting geometric unit with illuminated profile lines. The glossiness of the struts bring with it elegancy as well as classiness.
