We just completed a frenzied three days of construction on Outcropping, our installation at the Camp Bisco music festival. A couple of hours after we finished work, Skrillex opened the event with a wild two hour set. Here's a quick selection of photos of the first night's party by Isa Wipfli.
We are working on some new seating, partially shown here in a photo by our friend Isa Wipfli
Isa Wipfli took these amazing photos of powerboat racers for this months Intersection magazine.
I think I have to make this my new bio photo.
Two of my good friends are part of Holiday Home, a project by UN Studio opening at the Institute of Contemporary Art at the University of Philadelphia on January 20th. Noah Olmsted of Imaginary Forces is the project leader for experiential design and Isa Wipfli is the architectural photographer.
Candelabra is a design research project I done in collaboration with David Boira and Zoe Coombes, based on the work with minimal surfaces and genetic organization I did in Bill Macdonald’s studio at Columbia. The intention was to produce a chandelier that relies on its architecture rather than its technology for its performance. The curvature of the components was optimized to refract light as well as to connect seamlessly at its edges either in plane or offset. This logic allows for multiple configurations that were in the end sampled from the refractive behavior of digital flocking patterns (very Bill Macdonald). Best of all, its black.
The pieces themselves are made from vaccum formed plastic and fiberglass, covered in tons of bondo, sanded, and finished with primer and auto body paint. They and are attached at the edges by laser cut petg plates. They were made in a very intense 4 day spell in the MOMA PS-1 workshop under the premise that we were building prototypes for their summer jam series.
