Vitalized Geometry


Installation

2014

Moutier, Switzerland

Team: Sabri Gokmen & BFR Lab (Daniel Baerlecken, Judith Reitz, Matthias Frei)

Fabrication: Daniel Baerlecken & Sabri Gokmen

Assembly: Matthias Frei

This project brings together multiple ongoing research interests in geometry planarization, ornamentation and fabrication. The piece is designed for an exhibition held in a historic museum in Moutier where one of the rooms is decorated with a suspended chandelier installation. The structure is covered with infilling tendrils that invoke a sense of continuity as well as turn the form into a radiating structure that creates changing visual effects inside the exhibition space.
