Scripted Skin | Installation


The concept of the scripted skin evolved from redefining and contemporizing the historical 'Stone Jalis: perforated stone or latticed screen' of India. The entire installation is scripted from concept to construction.

Lattice structure of 'voronoi' was used to construct the skin. The idea for the screen was to create layers of visual penetration and cast interesting shadows on the walls and the floors.
