Keeping form.Posted: February 10, 2015
Some more experiments into the control of form. The first images use wire, which I find less effective than the other material I have experimented in. Perhaps a more flexible aluminium wire would be more suitable than the steel wire I have used here as it would allow for more flexibility. What I have been trying to achieve is to put a strip of wire through the hinge to allow it to be bent into different forms that will be supported by the wire.
I have also had a play with clipping smaller hinge parts into larger pieces, this has happened completely by accident and I need to experiment further to see if it can be further developed.
