Alexander Graham Bell invented tetrahedral kites while he was trying to make an airplane more than a hundred year ago. Recently two British artists translated Bell’s invention into a flying sculpture, Little Shining Man (Heather & Ivan Morrison, 2011). At first I was fascinated by the flying sculpture and tried to build my own kites according to the current instructions on the internet to build tetrahedral kites with drinking straws and tissue papers, but soon I realised that the current way is quite labor intensive process. So I tried to design components for easier kite building, and also I could figure out a way of making the structure collapsible, so that people can carry or store the structure more conveniently. I think I converted Heather & Ivan Morrison’s flying sculpture into a more accessible product and I also made the component data downloadable so that people can download, 3d print and build their own collapsible tetrahedral kites.
