To document the installation phase of the reOrder project, Situ Studio developed a time-lapse rig with cinematographer Nathan Levine-Heaney and engineer Jeffrey Blair. The rig consisted of 2 components: a cable track with drive assembly and a camera car with pan motor. Over 3 weeks, the rig was set up along a series of 5 path lines which created a 700 foot zig-zag course through the Brooklyn Museum’s Great Hall. The motors were controlled through Arduino boards and carefully coordinated to align the camera angle between path lines. The camera took a photograph every 2 minutes and travelled 35 ft/day.
Founded in 2005 while its four partners were studying architecture at the Cooper Union, Situ Studio is a Brooklyn, NY, based design and architecture firm. Making is the foundation of Situ’s work. Split evenly between a studio and workshop space, Situ’s office is set up to fully integrate material research, testing, prototyping, and fabrication into the design process itself. This approach seeks to place the virtual and physical components of the practice into a productive and non-linear relationship that creates space for the act of making to become a generative part of the design process.
