Chris lubing up for the first test hydraulic
Posted 16 May 2014 21:29
Session 6- Bench completed and in situ. The hydraulics are keeping the ropes taut, and slowly return back to shape after being deformed by someone sitting on them.
Posted 16 May 2014 20:07
Session 5- Frame completed and hydraulics installed, minus the viscous liquid we are using as hydraulic fluid.
Posted 16 May 2014 19:58
Session 4- Through planing and sanding, we returned found wood to its original state. We used this to create the frame for the bench.
Posted 16 May 2014 19:52
Session 3- Design stage. A proposed design of hydraulic piping keeping rope taut, allowing it to slowly sink to the ground if someone sits on it. SketchUp model.
Posted 16 May 2014 19:50
Session 2- Model benches in deformed state
Posted 16 May 2014 19:39
Session 2- Series of model benches exploring further ways of deforming.
Posted 16 May 2014 19:39
Session 1- Composite of brainstorming ideas for potential ways of changing shape.
