Titled ‘The Nest’, the project is based on a dynamic expression of movement and organic from.
The Nest project is located within roof area of the Elsewhere building in Brooklyn, NY. Perched above, the artwork is mounted to the floor and supported by scaffolding to partly suspended in space.
Our initial concept for the design work consists of simple formal nests representing the connectivity, bond and unifying spirit within the Bushwick community. The nest are distributed throughout area and connected with hand cut pine wood slabs to create an almost maze like structure. Each nest is also connected by a lightweight digitally fabricated, aluminum that features a pattern of openings which produces playful shadows on the ground and programmed light effects during the night. With hundreds of individual and unique components, the art piece appears to be in motion and constantly changing.
