Creating a Space
USing repetition to create a cal,ing space amid of chaos such us this space made of chairs. Here are some pictures that I found which are similar ; a chair sculpture in Abu Dhabi
Here is another piece by a design firm a design firm made up of mostly triangles. I might want to try this using cardboard on the laser cutter instead and sewing or some other method of attachment that allows it to be more manipulable.
Superabundant Atmosphere, an installation by Jacob Hashimoto includes thousands of shimmering white “kites,” each handmade from silk glued over a tied bamboo frame.
Liga Pang | Ikasu9 November - 9 December 2001
Ikasu, the title of Liga Pang’s installation for Rice Gallery is a Japanese word that means “to give life to”. This word embodies Pang’s laborious process of transforming dead, brittle bamboo into an exquisitely contoured sculptural form. Pang and four assistants worked continuously for an entire month to weave the mesh of bamboo twigs that makes up the installation’s delicate, room-sized structure.
To obtain the bamboo twigs for the installation, Pang and her assistants dismantled 150 large brooms of the type typically used in Japan to sweep outdoor gardens. Though it makes use of a common material, Ikasu is anything but mundane. Flexible but strong, fragile but rigid, the shaped curtain of bamboo mesh possesses a seemingly unearthly, understated grace.
A cool gallery that I like to check up on regularly is the one in Rice University as seen here.
