    A quarter of a million zip ties altered a gallery into a bristled vortex of swirling, cavernous zip tie fabric magnified through reflective cellophane and augmented by subtle changing color. ZIP expresses the story of collaborative effort through research, acquisition, design, and construction of an environment designed as haptic reading room.

    farnoosh RAFAIE: Color Code provides the opportunity for the individual to generate trigger and sequential memory through the cyclical display of the woven light fixture. As a color is chosen through the control panel, the activated pump runs the initial dye through the transparent tubing. When a sequence is made complete, the secondary color follows, prompting the primary dye to return back to the sourced supply.

    sucker PUNCH: Describe your project.

    juan carlos VAZQUEZ: A modern laboratory designed to alter the culture of research and its sister industry with architecture. An attempt to encourage encounters between material engineers, biologist, and artist to formulate and sustain an environment of cooperation. Laboratories today are plagued with over competition among colleagues creating a culture of secrecy, which hinders the creative process. An interdisciplinary laboratory eases tensions among colleagues by mixing scientist, engineers and artist from different fields who give input and suggestions for innovations within the laboratory. This laboratory type encourages novel ideas explored through this cross pollination of disciplines.

    suckerPUNCH: describe your project.

    studio400: This Is Not a Book Cave was a collaborative installation that was designed, fabricated, and installed in a period of less than three weeks with the goal of displaying and reading thesis books. Donated cardboard tubes, previously bound for recycling, were cut into predetermined lengths, ranging from less than an inch to four feet then clustered into a series of modules. The arrangement of different modules allowed for variance in form, while simultaneously creating changes in transparency and visual affect.
