Laura Mast’s wearable fabric structures

27Jan10

This project is by Laura Mast, an architecture student at IIT. This studio project looked at inflatable, wearable fabric structures to both costume and house a dance performance. Beautiful work like this, and here I don’t mean beautiful in solely an aesthetic sense, but rather in terms of the beauty of its ideas and process, is so humbling and inspiring.

Interesting elements: 1) the piece transforms, through inflation, from a costume piece to a wearable structure to a set piece once it’s taken off. 2) the use of grasshopper/rhino to investigate the parametric potential of the wing structures.
