A Home to Slack Science

Theory, experimentation and modeling of slacklines


Being is like walking on a highline across the void of nothingness and yet the opposites are in harmony and serve to define one another. As Heraclitus put it: "παλίντροπος ἁρμονίη ὅκωςπερ τόξου καὶ λύρης." Balancing is a fundamental process in nature and is achieved through dynamic equilibrium. Thus, it is not a surprise that the latter is also a key concept transecting human art and science. After all, studying slacklines may be more than it seems.
