Project Description: Part of an installation at Beakerhead 2015 called The Ministers, Nancy is an investigation of a self-supporting thin shell structure lit from within. The piece anchored the Beakernight event as an object to draw visitors into the space from the main street. This project was designed in collaboration with Mariana Ibanez and Simon Kim of IK Studio. The design focused on using various types of flat stock plastics to explore the limits of double curvature.
