Workshop: Vacuum-Formed Masks

Tuesday Oct. 30, 2018 , 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Vacuum Formed Mask Workshop

The Materials Lab hosted a workshop in the Build Lab for a Halloween-themed workshop where an assortment of spooky holiday masks were made!

Individuals could choose from over ten unique masks based off the likeness of faculty and staff members at the School of Architecture. Constructed from either ABS, LDPE or Styrene plastic, the masks are heated and pressed using the vacuum former located in the Build Lab. Mask molds have been prepared ahead of time by 3D scanning our subjects in the Technology Lab, then CNC routing the MDF molds in the Build Lab. 

Special thanks to Michael Benedikt, Judith Birdsong, Uli Dangel, Elizabeth Danze, Jeff Evelyn, David Heymann, Nerea Feliz, Charelton Lewis, Juan Miro, Larry Speck, Jake Wegmann and Nicole Wiedemann for volunteering their likeness.
