Self-erecting constructions can be created by inserting precut elements into an airtight bag and applying vacuum pressure. This type of ‘biform’ construction exhibits two shapes; one in its non-deflated and a second in the deflated state. For easy handling and transportation, the non-deflated elements need less space than they do in their erected final position. The kinetic principle applies to this construction as it “grows” or moves into its final shape.
