Gestalt Metamorphosis "Cact Ass"

  • For our final project in Spatial Dynamics, taught by Kai Franz, we were asked to download two 3D models and combine the two objects in which they would mesh together cohesively as one. After building the form, we rebuilt the surface by creating triangles on top of the contour lines of the form using the program Rhinoceros. Three or more triangles were grouped into strips, which was then printed with laser cutters out of bristol papers. These bristol papers were glued with a printed texture ("texture map") to strengthen the form of the (gestalt metamorphosis) two objects, adding meaning.
