Project Description: Part of an installation at Beakerhead 2015 called The Ministers, Sputnik is an investigation of thin shell structures produced by conic geometries. This project was designed in collaboration with Mariana Ibanez and Simon Kim of IK Studio. The design team focused on iteratively prototyping this project across materials and techniques. The final object was produced in thin shell aluminum from flat sheet material.
