GRADUATE REPRESENTATION SEMINAR
UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN: SPRING 2010
Charged with both designing an intuitive assembly set and to fabricate a modular screen, I became interested in material consequences, ornament/affect, and fabrication efficiencies. Swivel is crafted with 127 components of 20-gauge waterjet steel – sand blasted, and finished with lacquer. Swivel – composed in grasshopper – emphasizes the material’s ability to reflect and redirect light and bending properties to create a dynamic composition. The subtle rotation of Swivel’s interior components creates a motion effect as one circulates around it; light and shadow effects change with time of day and strategic positioning.
