Ocular - 49x47.3x48cm

Ocular is made of 6mm Plexi glass, digitally fabricated using the laser cutting technology used exclusively on sheet based materials. This process essentially turns simple 2d components into a highly faceted structure as they are slotted together in a fast, easy manner.

Ocular is a family based on a parametric module this is capable of growing in space in a multitude of directions: vertically, or sideways along branching paths. The main component bifurcates into a twig-like form, creating hierarchical structural levels. This component determines the proportional properties of the overall structure: the angle of bifurcation determines the height of a single module whereas its length determines the module's width.

Ocular initially draws inspiration from the Venus Flower Basket, Euplectella, whose diagonal ribbing and hierarchical meshing give it the necessary structural strength to withstand the high pressures of deep ocean waters.
