The Principals have directed a workshop entitled “Cosmic Quilt” with students from the Art Institute of New York. Over 1 week, students were instructed in the construction of a reactive architectural environment that opened to the public during New York Design Week, May 19-21.
Using a series of sensor-controlled motors and a unique system designed by The Principals, students learned to create an interactive environment which responds to visitors’ presence. “Cosmic Quilt” is composed of over 3000 pieces that work together to create fluid motion within an 8ft x 16ft x 12ft tall structure. The installation was shown at the Model Citizens NYC show, located in SoHo.
“Cosmic Quilt” is the latest in a series of architectural installations designed and constructed by The Principals that explore the interaction between user and the built environment. “Cosmic Quilt” will be installed next at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, Tennessee from June 7-10.
