Illusion of Instability - MATTER Show

This piece is an experiment with the appearance of instability and an object’s center of gravity. Through parametric software I analyzed a form that would fall over if it was a solid mass. I took this form and sectioned it into 19 different parts and then analyzed the distance of each section’s vertices from where the ideal center of gravity would be. From this analysis, I put voids into each of the sections ensuring that the mass’ center of gravity is over the base of the model.
