The structure was essentially a 2d line drawing turned into a 3d structure, and the drawings are an extension of that idea - digitally created line drawings that were intended to evoke flow and turbulence. They were made through a grasshopper and rhino software and then manipulated in illustrator to evoke different graphic mediums that were not digital - charcoal and paint for instance. See attached for several of them.
For the Slipstream structure, a similar 2d drawing was extruded in the computer and then carved away to make the curving walls. Each of the notches was calculated and drawn by a grasshopper routine and then the (1800) pieces were cut from plywood with a computer controlled mill. They all fit together without fasteners - the redundancy of pieces creates structural stability and keeps everything in place. The entire structure is only wood and paint.
