John Brockway – Digital Fabrication

This installation is the winning entry to the NOVEL competition at Woodbury University, formed to promote faculty research through fabrication. Designers had  free access to the digital fabrication facilities, funds for materials, and three months in which to complete this project. The fabrication strategy is one of simplification and swap-ability, designed to make maximum use of the available fabrication tools. Compression members are lengths of off-the-shelf aluminum T section, while tensile wires are assembled and “tuned” through the use of cable and turnbuckles. Prismatic textile units are unfolded, nested, and laser cut from glossy card-stock. Each component is then folded and joined through rivet connections.
