About The Mermaid

The mermaid is a temporary installation meant to standout as a synthetic anomaly in its natural setting. Building upon previous studies of parametric fabrication, the forming of the installation was influenced by site-specific lighting conditions during certain hours of the day to maximize reflection inside the installation, hence contribute to the contrast between the installation and the poorly lit context.

Live hinges created on the cnc cut components.

Using a strip heater and repetitive bending.

Followed by assembling using zip ties.
