LOOSE FIT

LooseFit explores the tension between contemporary use of digital technology with techniques of folding. Tapering skins of multilayered, membrane-like-structures create space, inviting bodies to move through from end to end. The precision of digitally guided cuts are in contrast to the imprecision of the hand, and geometry gives way to the structure’s own weight which turns it into a soft body. The project is the culmination of Monica Ponce de Leon’s work on the impact of digital technology on understanding the craft and was completed in collaboration with students and faculty from the University of Michigan
