Goals

The goal of intergrating commission artwork into the design allows us to create more immersive structures for the public to experience. It allows us to provide seating structures via trampoline hammocks for audiences to relax on and visuals for a more enchanting experience.

Process

Initially I was only making space net structures that combine with trees for people to relax in nature to escape the everyday hustle and bustle of living in cities. Then we decided that we should make something for the public to enjoy and have an immersive experience. Then I built the dome structure and had nets hanging from the top. Then our other members decided to take it to the next level by adding a custom light show as well. We create hundreds of different light shows where you can see the light (which looks like electricity) flowing through the net structures. Hence why we call it the "neuro net". Given that we are creating an immersive light show, we then made our trampoline hammocks for audiences to relax in and observe the show.
