Elastic Plastic Sponge
The key component to this full scale interactive art installation for Coachella Music and Arts Festival is the design of a form active geometric surface made from tensioned poles woven together to create a huge fabric. This festival form could be twisted, arched and curled to form different types of space including a lounge, a theater, or a large sculptural mobius strip. Each ‘cell’ within the elastic plastic sponge supported a fluorescent tube and the tubes shifted in orientation relative to each other to create the effect of sweeping motion. the form active structure was designed using 3d software. Built with Ball-Nogues studio for Goldenvoice.
