Project #2: 004_tall0104

With an interest in taking the three-pointed pillar form into a ridged mold I began with a a thin –approx. 2 inch thick– form. The idea being to create the “closed” or most opaque version that the tile would achieve. Conceiving that the “arms”  would have a reducible quality.










The problem that results is that the variation I’m perceiving is going to be dependent on unique molds for each condition. Inspired by the late stage three-tube gravity casting (see here) I realized that the two sides of the mold could simply rotate. This developed as this sort of form making:

The form has shifted to a static three point star. Above is a tight patterning dependent on a B-piece to act as a connecting hub. Below is a much more open circular patterning, one that does not require a B-connector, presuming use of dowels as end point connectors.

Following are some arbitrarily variated versions fo a fully dimensioned two sided wall system using this base component. Note that connection points are set on only one face. There would be the ability to shift connections between the two sides thus permitting a flux in the regularity verses chaotic presentations.
