This piece is a four foot long dolphin, built from algorithmically generated folded tyvek cells. The cells are laser cut individually and assembled using split-pin brass fasteners. (Tyvek is a paperlike material made from polyethylene fibers. It’s waterproof, with incredible tensile strength. It also diffuses light beautifully). The resulting sculpture is lit from within by an RGB LED strip. This allows the lantern to glow in any color or shade, to match the mood of the gallery. It can also be programmed to oscillate between colors.
