HIGHSCHOOL OF BUILDING ARTS GRADUATE SHOW 2003

HAPPENINGText: Andrew Sinn

Alek explained how this plate of metal that builds an armchair if folded the right way was produced: a computer-controlled laser beam cuts the edges and also lots of small circles that form the folding lines!

This production process is also remarkable. The computer-modeled object became reality by some sort of printer. It’s head can freely rotate and move into space and spits small drops of plastic into the right place starting from the bottom.

I think this bowl was made out of chinaware. Small cubes of sponge were soaked with liquid chinaware. In the stove the original sponge burnt and disappeared and all that was left is the chinaware looking like sponge..

This lamp is built out of plastic cups and makes a nice light.
