Model of the Fleeting Bench

The Fleeting Bench is made from 71 individual triangles, each incrementally different from the last to create a shimmering, rippled surface. 

The structure whisks along the ground in one line, sweeping the landscape as if leaving the trace of some fleeting movement.

The inside triangles are visible through a void inside, defined by but different from the outside form. This would be appreciated in a solid material through the gaps between the triangles but is most apparent in a transparent or translucent material.

We employed a few simple graphs to define a form is a way to make something complex from straightforward elements – a way to derive something that might otherwise not be conceived of. A graph, like a stroke drawn by a pencil, is a gesture. When the gesture is credible, it can be transferred to and expressed in other forms that we can respond to with our common-sense intuitive understanding of forces and potential movement.
