Conversation (im)balance

with Julien F. Thomas

For Julien F. Thomas, who is artist in residence at DordtYart, I helped to realize the project ‘Conversation (im)balance’. The project consists of a wooden platform that features in the visitors choreography. The platform moves in unexpected ways because of the shifted center.

Considering structure, weight and (re)constructability, the whole product was designed in 3D. The 94 unique parts were then parametrically translated to a 2D environment, from which code for CNC machines could be exported. Then all the seperate pieces were milled. The assembling was done by the artist himself.
