This project was practice/experimentation in the actual physical idea of light diffusion from a suspended installation. The media is cut-up white ripstop fabric, usually used for sailing purposes and lexan polycarbonate plexiglass cut into fragments. The pieces are then randomly sewn together in 4 web-like sheets, then suspended in layers. Working on this project make me realize how I work best and what direction I need to take the installation. It’s design needs to be more organic and free-flowing than that of what my initial designs have seemed to be. It’s arguable that my notions of my visual mock-ups as designs are flawed. In hindsight, those visual mock-ups, while very useful to describing the project to others, are not to be treated as actual design ideas.
From here on it, it’s experimenting time.
