children of tangaroa
I was asked by Maggie Carroll and Jess Barter to help digitally model fabric screens for an exhibition they were working on. Modeling needed to be analytical and produce information about the double curved surface. Rhino was used with a grasshopper script which gave me circumference, surface area, etc as models were continuously manipulated.
Here's what Nat Cheshire has to say;
Inner-city design firm Bureaux, led by the inimitable architect/designer duo of Jessica Barter and Maggie Carroll, pulled together a team of some of the city’s smartest talents to make this show. The centerpiece is a trinity of sinuous screens, onto which is projected the large-scale, close-range whale and dolphin footage they scoured the globe for. Bureaux’s cunning is to free the projection field of regular edges and even a regular depth; and with the help of a master AV team (Mike Dean, Mike Hodgson & Nic Fay), the result is as close to immersion as 2D projection gets. Lost amidst dinner plate eyes and slowly crashing tails, one cannot help but be moved by these extraordinary beasts, and grateful to the team that so artfully evoked them.
