Actuated Textiles for 'AT-ONE-MENT' A Collaboration with Wanbing Huang
Working in collaberation with Wanbing Hunag Studio and GSWDH, our challenge was to develop a series of actuated textile elements which could be used in the design some of the garments in the 'AT-ONE-MENT' collection 2018
With an array of proximity sensors to scans the room and provide a continually updating plan of the rooms occupation relative to itself and therefore where to directed the balloon. Now the question of co-ordination and position within the architecture is a continual process which can respond to changes in the number of occupants and make decisions on the level of activity of the audience in the environment.
Delta IV relied on a number of digital processes as well as practical knowledge to construct. From the Solidworks model of the piece CAD profiles were produced to waterjet cut the aluminium structural elements from plate material forming the chassis. Using Delcam Powermill Pro the same model was used to CNC mill fitting tolerances and details and SLS 3D printing was used to produce all other junction component before final hand assembly and finishing.
