Still very much an exploration and work in progress.
Flow is an experience seeking to re-create habitable nooks and crannies found in glacially
carved canyons and crevasses. It is imagined as a monolithic reflective block that when
delivered to the site, fractures and is deployed to a canyon-like arrangement providing shelter
from the wind and opportunities to relax and chat with adjacent crevasse dwellers.
Movement of skaters through and around the objects evokes the flows and eddies of natural
river patterns.The collection of flow blocks have an active
yet glacial presence that is accentuated by the relationship between figure ground and
the reflective exterior material. Reflection and refraction of the specular horizon echoes
the wind swept snow flurries in parallel with the striated horizon. Vibrant internal hues
resonate from external cracks and fissures and hint at interior environments intending to draw
visitors in to explore.
Preliminary work for some furniture pieces with high probability to move in other directions.
Trying an alternate point lighting system for the small scale mockup I recently made.
Another addition to the new Prismatiod Forest series
Some alternate lighting concepts for the Prismatoid Forest project. A mock-up is currently under construction.
Latest competition for work at University of Rochester. A series of translucent laser cut acrylic prisms. They will be illuminated from within....hopefully by using a setup of lasers and prisms that will "connect" the individual pieces establishing specific vectors relative to pathways and buildings. Also, as visual experience and way-finding devices.
