smart enclosure

here's a timelapse animation i put together while completing a model to illustrate my intentions with the enclosure system. The first half is the fabrication of the screen wall.... the second half is an attempt at showing how the wall may react to various local stimulus by opening.

It's a little pschysophrenic at the end, but the intention is for a scaled effect across a lattice framework that will be responsive to the local environment. For example each panel will continually monitor the air within the machine shop for fumes, heat, humidity, etc. and based off a given set of parameters will react by opening up to allow for ventilation.

once i figure out how to digitally model this system some images will follow..... it's rough at this point, just trying to flush things out.
