ECHO, a performative screen, can be seen as an extension of the body, capable of producing variability within the interior environment. Part of a 3 member team, I was involved in all parts of the process from ideation to implementation and production.
The computer numerical controlled (CNC) machine was the primary tool used in ECHOS development. The design was informed through a protocol of actions or a set of articulations as a way to transcribe performative attributes and dynamic effects into the model. Light diffusion, acoustic energy, permeability, air circulation and other performative and manufactured effects were also considered which allowed us to gain a deeper understanding on the latest advancements in materials, computation and digital fabrication.
