Clouds of Venice

Venice Biennale 2012

Supermanoeuvre
Fabricated at The University of Michigan
Summer 2012

I had the opportunity to be involved in the fabrication of Supermanoeuvre's installation for the 2012 Venice Biennale. My involvement was to help run the KUKA robotic system at Taubman College's digital fabrication laboratory and the minor welding of sub-assemblies. The robot bent the steel rod into specific shapes corresponding to modules within the installation. The modules were then welded into sub-assemblies and labeled. Once the sub-assemblies were shipped to Venice, they were assembled on site as part of the Australian Pavilion.
