Assignment 3

Reference and inspiration image – Lavaflow


after about 5min of stirring
after adding 40grams extra of water
After 5 mins we started to tilt the surface.
After 10 mins we started to tilt the board more and the concrete was sliding on the surface
After about 20 mins we started to tilt the board a lot more and the concrete was now sticking to the surface.
Result from experiment.
Here the concrete has been torn apart and has cracked
Here the concrete has gotten compressed


We wanted to try and emulate lava flow in this assignment. We mixed according to the recipe but thought the concrete was a bit to firm so we added a little extra water. To try and copy this effect we poured the concrete on a horizontal piece of wood and then tilted the surface to try and get the folds right. We soon realized that lava and concrete doesn’t really act the same way. It was hard to get the concrete to fold in the way we wanted but we did two test and one was more successful in emulating the lava, the other one was interesting because we could see a different effect with the cracked surface and the compressed part that broke of and was folded against the table.
