Rustbelt to Artist Belt Conference in Detroit

On April 7th I will be speaking in a panel “Edgy Practices: Creatives Making their Mark”.  The panel is part of the Rustbelt to Artist Belt Conference in Detroit which seeks to collaboratively explore the role creative people play in transforming the physical and economic landscape of post-industrial communities.  This panel will discuss how artists, designers and other creative practitioners are making their mark and will address issues pertaining to the shifting context for work, the ability to access significant opportunities and methods to gain recognition locally and nationally. The panel also seeks to identify what is needed and what is next for the region in terms of retaining and sustaining the careers of creative practitioners.

Folding structure with variation

I had a bit of time to finally get around to the next stage of the folding structure.  I was curious if a variation in panel dimension or in panel angle would still work in terms of folding.  I was surprised to find out that both work.  Here are a few images:

Simple animation where the skeleton angle is varied, which results in the overall assembly folding or unfolding.

Variation of the panel angle only.
Here is the angle and length of panel varied across the assembly.
