The initial test was done with the goal to try to simulate the behavior and interaction between weight of the material and gravity. All the tubes have fixed length and the weight is even along the lines. They are also comes with lateral connections between each other. After the tubes are being released, the fall naturally with gravity and the weight renegotiates with its new position to find a new stable position. The tube swings and settled once it is stable. This starting point allows us to use computational method to simulate the system before trying to add more complexity. The first factor considered was length. As the first model shown, even length means even new centroid. By shifting the centroid, we can have asymmetry formation.

The next consideration was the disconnection of the lateral connection. By disconnecting some control points, the new centroid of the surface will no longer be at the central but will have to be recalculated which means the formation will be more complex. By designing the connection straps, it is possible to have more touching surfaces between tubes for more self-binding.
