Symbio Robotics Site Specific Installation

2017 / PolyPROPYLENE, Styrene, metal, metal tape, spray paint.

The truncated conical shapes were rendered in 3D and using custom software we were able to generate exploded files of each of the 150 unique shapes.

We had most of them laser cut with perforated edges so we could fold and glue them into shape. We used a water jet to cut the largest (~5′) cones and then constructed them by hand with metal supports and metal tape.

We spray painted them various shades of pink and red then attached them to the ceiling. We were going for a sort of stalactite filled cave.

This was a collaboration with Josh Lopez Binder.
