"Essentia" 2009. Approx. 4 stories tall.
This Mobile Installation was created using kite parts for a light weight skeleton and rip stop nylon for the skin. The nylon was painted using various gravity fed spray guns connected to air hoses.

The paint used was Golden paint thinned specifically for spray application, afterwards it was coated using dust/fire retardant UV shielding varnish(multiple applications). My specific contribution to this installation was the design of the patterns on the each panel (ellipse and arches) and then forming a color pallet to compliment the patterns.

The basic idea behind the pattern, color, and form is the rhythmic dance of the Fibonacci sequence. The name Essnetia is the Latin derivative of the word essence.
