The project aims to build up multiple masses that engulf the tuba player as they are playing the instruments. We adapted braiding techniques to make volume. Changing the speed of the costume fan air flow, we are trying to create a breathing motion for this sculpture in which it has a life of its own.
We iterated a module of braids that consists of three curved tubes.
Testing out darts and pinning, we solved the airflow issue to enhance the voluminous form of the sculpture.
The parts that have darts seem to not unravel as much.
Making the darts consistent was difficult because the tubes were constantly twisting.
It took very long to create darts that fall into the right place. We need a better system of creating curves in an organized and effective way.
