Example text

I guess I also took a liking to Dan. He was fairly easy going and, at the same time, he and Amale obviously needed help. I’ve done a lot of big, massive projects with people like the Public Art Fund, with limited funds and limited time. So Dan and Amale’s project fit in, pretty much, with other projects that I’ve done in the past, just on a much bigger scale and with a really compressed schedule. Sam Dufaux: It’s pretty tight—everything in six months. You work one month on the competition, another month and a half organizing your team and project.

Each connection had three bolts through holes that had been predrilled in the 2x4s. Each 2x4 had a 4x4 “key block” lag bolted to it to support the planter disks, which were screwed down. The disks were at different heights, depending on their position within the overall plane. Some tubes also had double discs for reinforcement, and the picking holes had discs that were rings. It took forever to figure out the specifications for each daisy, and the pressure was on. Art was frantically trying to get everything going.

The idea of having contact between tubes is very important to the function of the structure. At the same time, the “daisy,” from an architectural standpoint, was really playful, given the ideas of the project. There’s something fun about that, right? Sam Dufaux: For weeks we were testing how to get this shape, fit all the tubes in the daisy module, and not have any gaps in between. 1 Dan Sesil: The compactness of things was really important—that part was quite fun, actually. When they make these paper tubes, they start with an inner ring of a set dimension.
