CLIMBER

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

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

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