“Inspired by Lebbeus Woods’ Slipstreaming drawings, this installation is made from over one thousand CNC cut plywood pieces that notch together to create an undulating, dynamically patterned and brightly colored wall. Developed as the extrusion of a 2-dimensional drawing through the gallery space in New York, the structure is then cut away to produce a set of interconnected 3-dimensional spaces. The project develops novel forms of digital drawing, ‘egg-crate’ type assemblies typical in stick built construction, and our ability to describe and produce the dynamics of flow and turbulence, a phenomena that have fascinated artists at least since Leonardo Da Vinci.”

FreelandBucks installation Slipstream (previously mentioned on AD) has been on view at New York’s Bridge Gallery since mid-July. However, the exhibition has come to an end and Slipstream is in need of a new home. Interested? You have less than 24 hours to place a bid on Ebay now!

    This is definitely a dynamic piece with its material being laid out in the most catastrophic manner. the power of digital tool would allow us to mimic Lebbeus Woods’ works but i find this installation is lacking the power to hold up the idea itself
