On The Line is a Riverside California based program of art, performance, and research that looks at clotheslines to explore our relations among people and with the environment. The Pubic raffle concept is intentionally used to promote engagement with the 2015 California statewide legislation to hang laundry or "Right To Dry." This blog is concerned with the 2016 participation element, while communicating the research and experiences from the public raffles.

Tensegrity has just arrived for On the Line programming! Tensegrity is a principle by which elements subjected to continuous tension can compose a structure that is self-standing. The elements of the structure are held together by a continuous action similar to the subtle forces that join people in society. So, the structure not only evokes or symbolizes social connection with its clothesline-inspired shape, it enacts them.
