the flux installation explores the possibilities of parametric modeling and digital fabrication at california college of the arts (cca). produced using cca’s cnc router and advanced parametric modeling techniques, the structure undulates in plan and section producing a sense of expansion and contraction in the long nave space at cca’s san francisco campus. through the use of parametric modeling and a series of custom designed scripts, the installation design can be quickly updated to address new design criteria. from the thickness of the ribs to the overall twisting form and perforated skins, the geometry is controlled through a complex set of relationships between its formal, performative, and fabrication constraints.
