Holocenic Canopy:

Location | Muncie, IN

An installation inspired by a material study of plastic grocery bag reuse and variable kinetics.

Holocenic Canopy began with a material study of the properties of plastic grocery bags.  It quickly became apparent that the sounds of rustling bags was a trait that would drive the design of the final installation.  After several design iterations the acrylic based, rubber band sprung design was decided upon.  Originally the intent was for this installation to be interactive and rustle, but unfortunately due to the prototyping process and the timeline of this project a static version was created to emulate the various positions possible if this design were to be pursued for further iterations.
