Openings

02May10

The site-based investigations have all maintained a neutral surface. It’s in keeping with the minimal character of the dances that have inspired it (Serif and Flow).

Here are two full-scale tests of how to make a minimal opening that maintains the surface quality of the fabric as much as possible.

This test overlapped two pieces of fabric by 12″. Fail.

Here’s the second test that overlapping the fabric by 24″. Success!

In order for dancers to pass through they must part the two layers independently – body interacts with fabric very closely to pass through.
