Wood Storm Desktop Installation by Naai-Jung Shih

Home > Winners > #64066


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Wood Storm

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Desktop Installation

INSPIRATION:
The concept of this design originated from the rolling configuration of cloud in a storm. The powerful force of Mother Nature is so vivid that it has created an image of the tumbling dynamics. The lights and shadows seem switching constantly. The type of force needs to be captured and frozen into a solid form.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The tumbling nature of storm cloud is now substantiated by a piece of rolling wood curtain and can be set up on desktop or any flat surface with lights casted from below. The individual linear wood or bamboo element creates a marching effect. The intermediate layout let people see the depth of space in a storm. The U-shaped transparent base is selected purposely to make the storm look like floating and expanding in the air.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
This installation is intended to be displayed statically. The interaction is made possible by guiding the line of sight around it to seek for the beginning or end point as the audiences actually experience the storm.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
This project started as early as 2015 in Taipei. A various types of material were applied in several on-and-off preliminary tests. The wood blind or curtain was assembled in 2017. The duration was about one month with intensive works.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Arts, Crafts and Ready-Made Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Wood curtain was used to represent the turbulence of air and give the storm a warm touch. Two levels of deployment were applied to create a typical vocabulary for the curtain surface by axial twist and circular roll. The smaller width of curtain was selected purposely to enable the void channels opened up from different orientations.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The size is 30cm(W) x 43cm(H) x 30cm(D).

TAGS:
desktop installation, lights and shadows, wood material, soft structure

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Researches were made to the composition of materials or elements with sufficient strength and continuous effect to ensure a smooth and turbulent visual order.

CHALLENGE:
The most challenging part of all was to create a twist vocabulary that let the edges and bodies of the curtain being self-supported. The curtain was personal favorite but not the first choice because its stiffness was not sufficient enough to show the tension of flow. The final choice was the curtain of 12 cm wide in two threads. Other types of curtain were tested as 30 cm wide and 200 cm long in 12 threads. The diameter of each linear bamboo element is 2 mm. The combination of the diameter, width, and length created a smooth transaction of surface.
