HANGING MODEL  / EXPERIMENT ONE

The project stems from a simple grid of hanging points, from which a system of hanging chains is formed through modularity, a triangular “unit” arranged by hanging from different points on the grid to accumulate into a study of symmetry and asymmetry. Three chains, two of which are of equal length, hang from a 5” x 5” x 7” triangle layout, projected onto a 10” square grid. From that initial shape, more chains are hung across the area of the triangle, forming a concave hanging shape, almost creating a perceivable surface as a mesh. The shape becomes the basis for modularity, as it is multiplied, moved, and rotated.
