This prototype represents 1/4 of the planned model. It shows top, side, front and corner conditions. It does not include the redesigned straps that now change relative to their span. I'm also going to add rough white bristol to the inside surface, which should highlight the oscillation of overlapping edges on the outer surface.
I updated the wall of pins with my new theme, "a dynamic interaction of opposites," but I'm not totally satisfied with that yet. For me the opposites are expansion and contraction represented by the circles and straps. The system uses one connection type throughout. The expansion of the circle puts tension on the strap. This is repeated with variation in size and degree of folding. Each module (consisting of both systems) is connected to four other modules and because of this the enclosure becomes structurally redundant. So the system is about cooperation, interdependance, and being comfortable operating in larger system of difference. This is how I would characterize my future as a 'digital craftsperson.' I expect opposition, I will however continue to act as a collaborator with change in exploring my ideas.
