Last week the Surface and Shape design team had a meeting at Rick Lee and Colleen Quen's studio. It was so inspiring to see the models and sketches. Rick Lee had refined his design to be a reflective structure reminiscent of cloud computing.
Wonderful scale model of environment installation. The metal will have perferations to enable it to bend easier. These stitch-like punctures will allude nicely to the hand stitchwork of Colleen's gowns.
