Inspired by Lebbeus Woods' Slipstreaming drawings, the installation is made from over one thousand CNC cut plywood pieces that notch together to create an undulating, dynamically patterned and brightly colored wall. Developed as the extrusion of a 2-dimensional drawing through the gallery space, the structure is then cut away to produce a set of interconnected 3-dimensional spaces. The project develops novel forms of digital drawing, ‘egg-crate’ type assemblies typical in stick built construction, and our ability to describe and produce the dynamics of flow and turbulence, phenomena that have fascinated artists at least since Leonardo Da Vinci.
