This piece explores how simple, stacking polyhedrons can be fabricated.
The three interlocking pieces were developed originally as planes in 3-d modeling software; as mass was added, miter joints were designed. The objects, with their miters, were laid flat and cut out of plywood with the CNC router and assembled simply with glue. The holes cut within the faces of the polyhedron directly correlate to each of the corners of that face.
The intention of the 'parasite' in the largest object was to use an inextensible material to create an object with compound curvature. The form was created through the use of triangular shapes laser cut from sheets of acrylic and zip tied together on the inside face.
