How We Fabricated Berkeley Art Museum Exhibit with Architect Thom Faulders

The Berkley Art Museum project took 3 month to finish
With more than 160 pieces, most 8' in length.
3 months from start to finish

We started out with over 100 blocks of EPS 1LB foam

Foam being cut on the CNC hot wire foam cutter

EPS blocks after being cut on the CNC Hot wire

Each piece is covered with 1/8" plywood on both sides
and 1/4" wiggle wood from the top

Each piece is primed

And then Painted

Pieces placed, and mounted to one another

We glued anti slip pads onto each unit

The end result is an interactive Living Art, "serving as a site for rest, relaxation, and study, as well as a platform for the experience of live performance and multimedia events".
