- (De)compositionof Metric Space
- thefuturefuture were selected for SPRING/BREAK Art Show where we featured a site-specific installation alongside a great curator driven show. Our piece, (De)composition of metric space, inhabits the oft forgotten zone between two floors. The cellular structure forms above the stair landing and grows along the underside of the steps overhead. The piece consists of more than 200 unique 3d printed joints spanned by over 300 custom pipes, forming a soap bubble-like structure. Each joint’s faceted shape orients its faces by the angle and number of pipes meeting at its intersection. The piece was prefabricated in our studio using a Makerbot 3d printer and constructed on-site.
The show inhabited 4 floors of one of the city’s oldest schoolhouses and was packed with young, creative, emerging art. Running alongside the Armory Arts Week, SPRING/BREAK offered a “break” from the traditional art fair model showing a range of work from many of the city’s curatorial voices. Thanks to Andrew Gori and Ambre Kelly (The They Co.) for curating us and for all of their amazing work with organizing the show.
(De)composition of metric space is a manifestation of dispersed media at the intersection of creation and destruction. Similar in the formation of bubbles to foam, it is a self-organizing system in its most stable condition, yet concurrently on the verge of failure. This balance in duality is represented in the delineation of numerous convex polytopes constructing a topology of space that is simultaneously observed as the intelligent configuration of space and the remainder of carved away chards from a greater whole.
