|A meeting of minds between three artists
Rinus Roelofs, Dániel Erdély and Kenneth Snelson
Rinus Roelofs (artist and graduate of Twente University, the Netherlands) has been developing geometric representations together with the American artist Kenneth Snelson, famous for his tensegrity art, and the Hungarian artist Dániel Erdély (designer and researcher), the discoverer of the Spidron concept. Their work is all about the design of infinite structures which invite one to think further, in all directions.

Het Spidron concept
|• Rinus Roelofs and Kenneth Snelson
The cooperation between Kenneth Snelson and Rinus Roelofs has resulted in the development of designs for space frames with three-dimensional weavings as sculpture. This has ultimately led to "sliding structures". Rinus Roelofs explains: Various ideas for building up spatial structures from simple elements emerged from my contact and discussions with Kenneth. Weaving still played an important role in the first models I discussed with him. Weaving enables one to construct a cohesive overall structure from separate elements. The discussions (primarily by e-mail) with Kenneth encouraged me to look for new possibilities over and over again. The weaving was later replaced by a system of "slide together" structures. The interesting thing is that, with this step, different structures can be built from a single basic element. The basic element now chosen has been used to create five spatial structures which belong together".
