I’m back in Oslo for the summer and have a tight schedule planned for finishing the conch sculpture. Paal Feduik at High Performance Composites in Fredrikstad will build the actual sculpture using the CAD models Ragnhild Haugum has provided him. Ragnhild has spent a good deal of time trying to trace my polygon model with nurbs curves in AutoCAD for the last few months and have now finally finished her work. And it looks good! First off we’ll do a small prototype model to see if there are any changes we might want to do with the design. Seeing an object in real life can reveal weaknesses in the design that can be hard to spot on a computer screen. I will post images of it as soon as it is finished. Final production is scheduled for July/August, with private viewing and testing session.
