This study of tectonics required investigating multiple types of joints between two elements. The goal of my proposal was to create a single element to join the plates that would be rotated, generating variation from piece to piece, while retaining a smooth geometry when viewed as a whole. The solution called for a curved “stick” to be inserted into a notches “plate” of wood. The notches of the plates were carved using a band saw and the curves “sticks” were milled by a CNC machine. The assembly is held together completely by wood glue.
