This exhibit crafts an interdependence between computing and drawing in an effort to question the role of the singular "author" within contemporary design culture. With apparatuses and algorithms designed specifically for the Linear Gallery site, visitors participate in multiple "slowly computed" and "slowly made" drawings that occur over the course of the exhibit.
The Cardboard Chair Project introduces General Education students to the design of objects for human use, exploring the fit of object to human body and its ability to support human activity. The project introduces tangible realities of material, structure, and dimensions. It introduces basic architectural design technologies of drawing and physical model building.
Chamber is a spherical capsule made predominantly of industrial felt. From without, it is a soft polyhedron of felt cells, evoking simultaneously the rigid geodesic domes of Buckminster Fuller, and the supple symmetries of Robert Morris.
