How We Fabricated Berkeley Art Museum Exhibit with Architect Thom Faulders
The Berkley Art Museum project took 3 month from start to finish, With more than 160 pieces, most 8' in length.
We started out with over 100 blocks of EPS 1LB foam and lots of plywood
We cut the blocks of foam into modules shapes using our CNC hot wire foam cutter
We covered each piece with 1/8" plywood on both sides
and 1/4" wiggle wood from the top
Each piece of module (covered with the plywodd) was primed
then painted bright orange
All pieces were glued and mounted to one another, then we glued anti slip pads onto each unit
All module pieces were installed at Berkeley Art Museum and electric sockets were added to them to enable visitors to hook up their laptops
The end result is an interactive Living Art, "serving as a site for rest, relaxation, and study, as well as a platform for the experience of live performance and multimedia events".
