Commissioned by Roland Snooks for the Fibreglass Fabrication.
About the Installation
This was a collaboration between CC and RMIT to design and build this art piece for their industrial design exhibition at RMIT, and China expo.
The composite fibre installation compresses surface, structure and ornament into one intricate and irreducible assemblage. The complexity of the project is made possible through the development of robotic fabrication techniques including the extrusion of the fine-scale surface articulation. The surface gains its strength through the location of the articulation that operate as structural beams within the surface. This strategy enables the surface to remain only a few millimetres thick while spanning and cantilevering considerable distances.
