IN THE MIDST OF THINGS
COLLABORATION: LSE | AKCG
INSTALLATION | CURATION
The final installation was made using a variety of techniques, initial drawings, scanned, seperated into layers and rendered either as vector pathways for a cnc router, and pathways and bitmaps for laser cutting and engraving.
The parts were then assembled, finished and fitted using manual carpentry techniques and bonding agents.
The design of the piece was determined by research into principles of neuroscience and semiotics, distilled into a decision making framework for creative practice. [ A ]
