    Wangshu ZHOU & Jieru DING: This project explores the relationship between material properties of solid wood and CNC-milling technology. In the material study, by investigating the physical effects of drilling in wood, including traces and residual byproducts, a design system is proposed to covert these uncontrollable “misfits” into designable elements within their size and distribution.

  • Duramen
    paris FRANCE

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Bonsoir Paris: DURAMEN is a series of handmade wooden sculptures. Born of a simple impulse, the one to break with conventional ways of exhibiting, Bonsoir Paris and its team have imagined a series of frames so strongly mistreated that they have become unrecognizable. Their wish is to break the properties of the compound, a form of compromise as minimal and it is efficient. They found a subtle twist while remaining faithful to a primitive form of revolt, without getting lost in vain styles effects. The choice of noble materials (Oak, Fir, Wenge, Pear, Linden) and the quest for finesse, enables them—with the DURAMEN series—to position themselves on the razor’s edge between two opposites, that of the deformed and that of the elegant, instinctive and thoughtful.

  • Schistose Mirror
    brooklyn NEW YORK

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Francis BITONTI: Francis Bitonti Studio produced the Schistose Mirror for the Intersections Symposium at the New York City College of Technology in June 2012. The different geometric organizations carved into the relief to produce a landscape of perceptual effects. The Mirror is CNC cut from high-density urethane foam and finished with a black automotive finish and can be produced in about two weeks time. The automotive finish produces a variety of effects across the surface. The reflective surface allows the onlookers to project themselves into the ephemeral landscape. The viewer becomes the project, integrating perception and form.

  • Slipstream
    new york NEW YORK

    Site specific installation, Bridge Gallery (NYC)
    July 2012

    Inspired by Lebbeus Woods’s Slipstreaming drawings, the installation is made from over one thousand CNC cut plywood pieces that notch together to create an undulating, dynamically patterned and brightly colored wall. Developed as the extrusion of a 2-dimensional drawing through the gallery space, the structure is then cut away to produce a set of interconnected 3-dimensional spaces. The project develops novel forms of digital drawing, “egg-crate” type assemblies typical in stick built construction, and our ability to describe and produce the dynamics of flow and turbulence, phenomena that have fascinated artists at least since Leonardo Da Vinci.
