Research Assistant:  Hayden Pattullo

Budget: N/A
Status: Proposal

The project is composed of a field of brightly coloured discs attached to a grid of thin wires in such a way as to allow the discs to flutter in the wind, reflect light and produce patterns on the spaces around them. The technique is such that we can experiment with various iterations of pattern and symbols in the consultation, design, and fabrication process. FloQ captures the ways in which we move and evolve cities and cultures in response to the one another and the conditions that surround us.
