HOW CAN WE CAPTURE THE EBB AND FLOW OF DAILY ACTIVITY AND PROVIDE A BACKDROP FOR CUTTING EDGE RESEARCH, FABRICATION AND DESIGN?
Waveform: The form of a signal moving in a physical medium.
Waveform creates a fluid and visually striking backdrop for the daily ebb and flow of the Metropolitan State University, Aerospace and Engineering Sciences Building, in Denver CO. Reminiscent of land form topography, it is an artwork that explores the interplay of dynamic forces moving through a physical medium. Waveform is a composition of elements “frozen in time” and animated through form differentiation, and subtle lighting effects. The artwork is never the same for the passer-by: from the student or faculty member heading to another class, to the visitor, board member or prospective student. Waveform is an installation that is inspired by science and engineering, created through the most advanced fabrication methods available, finely crafted and assembled, yet ephemeral, light and playful.
Materials: CNC-milled plywood, CNC-milled frosted acrylic diffusers, welded and powder coated steel, white LEDS, DMX controller.
Fabrication: Waveform was fabricated entirely in our San Francisco studio.
Location: Denver, Colorado (Metropolitan State University, Aerospace and Engineering Sciences Building)
