Design & computation: MARC FORNES / THEVERYMANY
Completion November 15, 2016
This project is the latest step within the development following Marc Fornes invention on “Crawling Digital Mesh Topology as a Stripe based Material System”. It is also the largest to date as permanent structure.
Design Development in progress on a 48′ x 35′ x 26′ distributed network that will hang within the concourse of the OCCC, altering the experience of the massive space by creating a lower sub-ceiling. The permanent structure will act both as a curious signal and a place for visual wandering.
