"If you look at the rope, it looks like it’s braided together, but actually it isn’t. What happens is we’re twisting as tightly as we can in one direction. And then we’re going to twist the strands back on themselves, and as we twist them back they release and create a kind of lock into each other."
- Janine Antoni
