MEMBRANE MODEL / EXPERIMENT TWO
We used balloons to create multiple forms through a fishnet stocking fabric. The fabric tensile membrane was connected to three acrylic pegboard sides via 3d printed discs. The fabric both wrapped and supported balloons of various weights (due to the amount of water chosen to fill them). This fabric compressed the balloons whose surface is in tension, and we extrapolated forms by manipulating the way in which the two materials interacted.
