Le Laboratoire and the Harvard University Graduate School of Design are pleased to sponsor an exhibition by Argentine artist and architect Ciro Najle, a frequent design critic at the GSD, entitled cummulus. From 2007 to 2010, Najle worked alongside engineers, scientists, and water experts in Chile to design fog-collecting nets. Informed by this research, his complex cloudlike installation was developed using computer-numerical technology and constructed using crochet, a material ideally suited to forming complex topologies. cummulus, the moving aesthetic outcome of Najle’s creative engagement with the issues of water access and the atmosphere, was first exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver in 2010/2011. The opening for the public is on Friday October 7, 2011.
