suckerPUNCH: describe your project.
miroslava BROOKS / amy DEDONATO / james GIRODAY: thermoCLOUDS was an experiment investigating the thermal dynamics of plastic. Through natural processes of heat and gravity, we were able to exploit the plastic’s inherent material logic and measure discrepancies through its limitations. Plastic panels were fabricated and painted for a specific aperture in the Yale Art and Architecture building. The points were performative, framing certain views and modulating light to produce an ambient effect on the interior of the hallway.
