Elastic Swarm

Exhibit model

The model is at a scale of 1:100 and composed of elastic threads, rubber tubes, two way mirror and opal acrylic. The dimensions have been influenced by the extraordinary dimensions of an old industrial site, Eaton Grain Silo, in Oxfordshire which has since been demolished. The model was shown at the London Art Benniale Jan 2015 and at the World Stage Design Exhibition July 2017.



The figures have compensating technological extensions that bring them to life — their jet packs make them vibrate on the elastic which in turn shakes. The jet pack is a motor that we find in our mobile phones. They are always on the go. Their amplitude is relatively low so from time to time they judder about.
