smartgeometry 2012: manta – acoustically responsive sculpture

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.
