Unraveling Field

Critic: Mark Gage

YSoA, spring 2012

The objective of this fabrication seminar was to create a tectonic rain screen. The design was composed of spiraling and unraveling colored ‘veins’ that terminated in bundles that could attach back to a building envelope. The fabrication process involved profile milling the paths of the ‘veins’, inlaying plastic tubes into the milled piece and injecting colored resin into the tubes to give them rigidity and color. A plexi-glass frame was then attached to the back to provide extra support, after which the piece could be mounted.

Hanging Bench

Hanging Bench

Partners: Teoman Ayas and Sarah Gill

This hanging bench is installed in Rudolph Hall and was designed to interact with the proportions of the building's guardrails. We designed a bench with side tables and a standing bar that would hang over the railing on the roof terrace using four waterjet-cut steel profiles. Wood slats are inserted into notches cut into the profiles, shifting irregularly to give the piece balance.

Egg Crate Light

Egg Crate Light

Spring 2011

In this fabrication class, we were asked to simply fabricate something using either the 7-axis robot or the flat bed mill. My partner Sarah and I decided to learn the robot. 

We milled egg crate tiles with four undulations, each undulation having a diffferent sized aperture or thinness of material at the peak of the crate. This allowed for four different light readings behind the tile, as they transmitted a gradient of light through the milled foam.
