Mr Living Bricks

Objective: Make a strange monolith

Response: This project uses the complexity found in simple natural phenomena such as gravity and material viscosity to relieve the designers of trying to create it.  Each 'brick', while created by the same means and methods, has an individual quality as a result of the stacking/drying process.  The 'nose' was created as a way to hold the units in place while they dried.
