CCAB is an exploration of plurpipotency, the ability of a form to have different developmental possibilities. Parametric modeling enables the three dimensional geometric shape [a component of four triangular polygons] to be distributed and transformed over a surface by several affector points at varying levels of attraction. The physical model is then digitally fabricated using mylar sheets, laser cut into 120 unique ribbons. This material choice allows for the built form to undulate naturally. Part of the design objective was also to finesse the form and its possible outcomes through a series of trials. CCAB employs a sophisticated connection mechanism to allow for manual construction to proceed in strands, while showing a full array of geometric possibilities.
