Over two weeks students explored rule based aggregations and variations of tetrahedron geometries through analog and digital models while simultaneously devising a joinery and documentation system for the full scale build. These images from the 1:1 scale build with the Ex-Lab as part of St Kilda Festival 2011.
The final structure took 8 hours to complete and covered approximately 400 square meters of beach using over two thousand bamboo poles.

“Color reflection through the combination of colors and materials. The play of surface to surface reflections with the purpose of experimentation on how these three criteria (reflection/ shape/ color) effect each other and how they influence their surroundings, any available light is captured and reflected back to produce the desired light ambiance.”
The research phase un-folded my interest in viewing color in an indirect way, seeing the resolute color via a neighbouring surface, which provided a distinct atmosphere.
