Hyperbolic Paraboloid Video

Hyperbolic Paraboloid, CrossRoads School, Santa Monica, CA

Designed in collaboration with architect, Fred Fisher, the artwork consists of a folded square frame that rises up from the roof of the new science building and warps a cable net into the shape of a hyperbolic paraboloid. 1296 wind-animated vanes mounted to the cable net create a dynamic map of the ratio of wind forces to gravitational forces. The structure also serves as a shade for the rooftop gathering space. Completed in 2015.
