The seven biotechnical parts: crystal, sphere, cone, plate, strip, rod, and spiral (screw). beginning of sculpture. yet biotechnical components now were additional as a brand new crew to be had for program. however, the shape proposal of sculpture, the plastic shape, is known during this publication because the phases of plastic improvement — and never because the program of geometric or biotechnical components (solids). Biotechnical components previously entered extra quite into expertise, the place the practical perception referred to as for the best economic climate. Raoul France has amazing seven biotechnical constructional parts: crystal, sphere, cone, plate, strip, rod, and spiral (screw); he says that those are the fundamental technical parts of the entire global (Fig. 27). They suffice for all its approaches, and are adequate to deliver them to their optimal. The optimistic program of those parts, particularly the spiral (screw), has resulted in ideas which are fabulous of their relation to past (baroque) aesthetic rules. this day we consciously hire the entire inventory of biotechnical parts, and the result is a brand new notion of attractiveness — exemplified by way of radio towers, spiral stairways, chemical vegetation, and so forth.

The sculpture, rather than being put on a base — leaving it nonetheless a kind of excessive reduction — was once erected on a number of issues of help. (But if those issues of aid have been con­ nected, the previous wide base might have re-appeared. ) At a later level of improvement the appearance was once heightened by way of glass, or of virtually invisible wires, in which the sculpture used to be hung (Fig. 28). Examples of equipoised sculpture which don't depend upon such an phantasm are, for the current, tough to discover. Such sculpture needs to successfully be kinetic to boot, due to the fact purely during the motion of hostile forces can or not it's dropped at balanced relaxation, to equipoise.
