Crumple Zone, a site-specific installation is utilising CNC-punchpressed steel with projected imagery to create a piece that challenges the preconceptions of the Vitruvi­an principles of stability, utility and beauty in the inaugural exhibition by Factio, a not-for profit curatorial collective created to support a dia-logue within British fashion, art, design and architecture.

Bypassing the typically linear process of design followed by construction, and reversing traditional skeleton struc­tural systems Plasma Studio programmed a pile of stan­dard industrial sheet steel with information in the form of perforated seams. As in recent automotive strategies, the seemingly weakened material organization enables a for­mation of global stress distribution lines achieving a differ­ent kind of structural performance.

The sheet material turned form through the negotiation of overall curatorial organization, the site and structur­al form-finding. Still, it mirrors traditional architectural works in expanding from the subservant function of provid­ing surface and backdrop for the other exhibits to its own inherent discussion.

While the piece is derived from a rigorous set of propor­tional relationships, these merely differentiate the material consistency to direct the reciprocal forces within the pro­cess of production. A contemporary aesthetic discussion stems from the embedded interrelationships, the sensu­ality of forms liberated from straightjacket Cartesian rules and its weightless appearance.
