Sculptural projects by Marc Fornes tread through several categories—architecture, biomimicry, fine art, engineering—and his pieces can fittingly be inspiring from multiple angles. The most recent of his site-specific installations expands on his exploration of "stripes" and topology, creating an enormous coral-like structure out of thousands of smaller flat plates.

The piece is titled Under Magnitude and installed at the OC Convention Center in Orlando. It works on heady but fascinating ideas like multi-dimensionality and compound curvature using flat segmentation, and reinterpreting the architectural limitations of a bubble. TheVeryMany studio's explainer video is both meditative and frustrating, giving a beautiful sweep over the making of the installation without nearly enough technical detail (at least for engineering hungry viewers like me).
