Each collaborator adds to a composition in sequence, either by following a rule e.g. “The adjective noun adverb verb the adjective noun” or by being allowed to see the end of what the previous person contributed.
designers guillermo bernal, zackery belanger, eric ameres, and seth edwards have sent designboom their project ‘manta’, an acoustically reactivesuspended sculpture developed as part of smartgeometry 2012 a four-day workshop and symposium in troy, new york, USA.the interdisciplinary project is a dynamic manifestation displaying the incorporation of architecture, fabrication, interactive technologyand research in acoustics into an actualized form. ‘manta’ is formed from a system of CNC machined panels and connectors comprisedof high-density polyethylene while it’s shape results from bending stiffness and triangulation. the hanging piece makes use of its rigging,infrastructure and home in an acoustically inert environment in order to become a truly kinetic sculptural work.
