Materials: Fiber-Reinforced Plaster

Fabrication process:

Using nylon fabric and wooden dowels as form-work, the weight of the liquid plaster slurry causes the fabric to sag, expand, and wrinkle before finding a state of equilibrium. The form that emerges resonates with the tension between our own elastic skin and fluid interior.

What really interests me is the way they shape the casting. Using the self-organization of material under force to shape it. It is similar to the tension between our own skin and fluid interior. This really makes the casting like an alive biology. Maybe it can even breathe through the holes on it, just like cells of human beings.
