This class will be fabricating a large inflatable structure (ultimate synthesis of the first seven weeks). The first two classes will be dedicated to critical discussions on form, membrane properties, and the final showing environment. The chosen form will be digitized and the 3D model will be used to leverage logistics of the large form and patterning. The digital model will then be transferred to an analog construction process. The size and complexity of the large cell will be a function of student participation. The more fabricators we have, the bigger we go. This intensive compilation of group research and collaborative manufacturing will culminate in a public celebration of the cell at the end of term.
This course will be offered the second seven weeks of term.
