PERFORATED SLAB is inspired by the non-traditional use of prefabricated materials in vernacular/improvisational built spaces. Formed in an intuitive fashion using cement as the binding agent, the construction goal was to create an enclosed space, which was then bisected or cut in ways that highlighted the unusual forms and the disjointed construction. At the point of division, the chaotic system of fragmented grids revealed a relatively basic rectilinear shape. This shape becomes the layout for the metal components that are integrated into the plywood and cement forms. The sleek metal forms lie in contrast to the rest of the construction and at this juncture the two are hinged allowing the object to remain in constant flux. These connected fragments move towards each other in the direction at which the two sides would meet together, acknowledging the two separate forms as parts of a whole. This kinetic activity allows the pieces to respond to the body when worn, and dictates its visual state on the individual wearer.
