Another Singularity Series
2008-2010The Another Singularity series consists of three innovative tensile rope and bungee chord sculptures made with Antony Gormley based on the polyhedral packing of the space within the human body.
The sculptures were made for shows in Sweden, Japan and China.
The concept of tensile ‘bubble matrix’ geometries was developed by Tristan Simmonds. Working with body scans of Antony Gormley, he developed a system for the interactive digital sculpting of polyhedral ‘bubble matrixes’ to a human form. The resulting geometries were then processed using structural form-finding techniques into viable tensile geometries with multiple supports literally shot out to the gallery walls along trajectories to ensure tensile equilibrium.
