Bridging the Gaps 2

Continuing the development of the ‘rough and ready models’ has resulted in several forms covered in plaster that has been applied liberally and with deliberately roughness. Two of the underlying forms were created with the use of the newly patented ‘spade’ deformer, whereas the more linear of the pieces was created from several hoola-hoops cut up and rejoined. It will be interesting to see how the 3D scanner reads these forms as there are a lot of gaps and overhangs in the foam squirts and particularly in the linear plaster study, where the outer hessian was roughly applied, meaning lots of layers with transparent structure.  

Next Stage

  1. To scan some of the studies and get them in CAD for further manipulation.
 2. Create the layered forms in Ply wood possibly using a water jet cutter with an eye on the possibility of the cutting and absorption of water leading to distortion of the forms through expansion etc.
