David Murphy – The Blanket

David Murphy – The Blanket

It was really exciting to be asked to help David produce this piece for The Piece Hall in Halifax. It is such an amazing location and the project had some fun challenges. . During the design phase, our 2019 Solidworks software allowed us to parametrically adjust the radius curve of the modules until we achieved the flowing form David wanted when it was all bolted together. David and I then worked together on production to weld over 100 modules from over 1.5km of steel tubing. The whole sculpture is supported on rubber feet to protect the courtyard flooring and has a 3 stage powdercoat in the red oxide colour for longevity outside.
