Grasshopper Workshop


In the Grasshopper Workshop, Emily and I continued to develop our intervention on O-Hill. The grasshopper definition that we developed consists of two elements — lines that move in the direction of the wind with a force proportional to their elevation (and therefore to their exposure to wind), and panels that trace contour lines and move perpendicular to the wind to act as a shelter from it.
