Shade installation that makes different wavey patterns with transparant fabric and thread,

Extreme environment projects, P19, 2013 

 

A new way of block the sun lights, new forms of curtain/blind/shade.

I proposed the application of floating fabric shades which held by vertically fixed thread in frame. this can be moved up and down, made into very free wave shapes. I got inspiration from 'floating garden' in Lake lnle in Malaysia. They grow vegetable in flooded area making small islands with floating plants and dirt, and fix them to one position with very long bamboo rods. I took the way of Malay people keep their floating garden in particular position on the lake, and use this to  completely different area. This was lucky combination in my head.
