Cable ties perform as both the material of the skin as well as fasteners and joineries. The skin is composed of looped cable ties of six sizes: 5/16", 1/2", 5/8", 3/4", 1", and 1 1/4" in diameter. The manipulation of the tightness of the loops allows for different density to occur. The smaller loops, which allow for more flexibility, construct the area of the body that has more curvature or requires movement such as the shoulders and elbows. Furthermore, the connection of the loops with another cable tie allows for a spiky exterior in contrast with the smooth interior surface. Body as Catalyst This confined habitable space is a permutation of the Mao Jacket, which is an object only visually registered upon human interaction. When the user walks through this habitable space, the lines expand and contract through a dynamic field of movement and sound. This generates a unique experience for each user, depending on their height, size, and speed. The space captures movement through different densities of materials used. Screens are composed of a layer of clear elastic threads, woven through 6" acrylic tubes. A layer of gridded fishing wire holds the tubes in place. One side of the tubes were tapered allowing for more points of contact with the body. It also creates an effect distinguishing the interior from the exterior space. The elastic allows the panel of acrylic tubes to stretch and contract when one walks through the space.
