Flooring: Fleshless
Click background for slideshow.

The Fleshless Floor began as an experimental investigation of swollen, gas-infused forms and found its final expression as the ground treatment in an art gallery. The resulting floor is a stretched geometry, compressed and extracted from sheets of an inexpensive ubiquitous material: Birch plywood. Digitally fermented, the originally thick and cloud like model was condensed to fit within a depth constraint of no more than 6 mm.
Visually, 'Fleshless', projects a tension between the model's form- (generated within a software built to mimic nature), and the natural dynamics of the layers of wood.
