The Giant Self-Standing Bamboo Quasi-Periodic Six Axes Lattice

I placed MUMAGARI 600 at my tea farm garden.
It is displayed as a permanent sculpture beside the Bamboo Fibonacci Tea House.

The MUMAGARI 600 consists of just 600 bamboo poles. It stands itself without any support.

I analyzed again the principle of the MUMAGARI last March.
There are some innovations.
It was solved why it can self-stand.
The MUMAGARI 600 is the first stage of this quasi-periodic dynamics.
The sculpture is a proof of the principle.
I should call it "a theorem" rather than "a work".

From now, I will build quasi-periodic labyrinth based on the Penrose Tiling in my huge property as an experimental city design.

This arrangement is the Pentagonal Penrose Tiling.
