Visualization III

Project Description

This project explores the hidden capacities and potentials of a simple, three axis wooden form. Through use of a modular shape, the project addresses systems of order and chaos via multi-dimensional stacking. The assemblies were displayed via time lapse videos, which served to show the building sequence of the model and also to illustrate the various ways in which the system was tested. Certain tests explored how an ordered system breaks down, while other iterations focused specifically on site, aperture, or the use of formwork. Over time, we realized the small, somewhat unassuming form of the jack was amoebic and expansive, multiplying in size and mass to fill whatever space it occupied. Dashes of color on the ends of each module alluded to the installation’s playful qualities, and also further conveyed the layering and clumping patterns of each new form.
