CLIMBER

2015-2016
hand-cast rubber
ca. 33 x 20 x 20 cm each
15 unique multiples

Based on the motif of a spiral staircase, the Climber series brings together diverse references inlcuding towers, vessels, flying objects and explosive devices.

Constrained by requirements for precision, conventional architectural models seldom capture the full spectrum of desires and mental archaeologies involved in place-making. Here, a new method of casting rubber combines 3D printing with freehand modelling, allowing other associations to emerge through mixing design, chance and intuitive forming.
