GLD's ongoing experiments in alternative processes of cast concrete furniture is included in a current exhibition, Makers in the Making at the NADAAA Gallery. The show incorporates current projects and new material practices taken on by MIT's faculty. GLD's piece, titled "Two Means, One End," displays the two casting methods we've been developing: a flexible sewn Tyvek formwork with a plaster "death mask" of its failed prototype, and a self-structured bent aluminum formwork with its finished cast product.
Makers in the Making had its soft opening to the MIT community on November 14, 2013. Official opening date is December 14, 2013, and it will run until February 7, 2014.
