Bisymmetric Hendecahedra

Freelab is over and summer is on!  As promised, these are a few shots of our final installation. After a week of research, planning, and design we began manufacturing 500 cardboard bisymmetric hendecahedra. By orienting this 11-sided block we created masses and tendrils, spanned gaps and scaled walls. The result is part vine, part parasite, creating both building-scale and people-scale moments as it passes from outside to inside. It’s too bad the installation is so temporary but for now it’s turning heads. The cardboard can at least be recycled, though I wish I could bring it all home with me.
