Working collaboratively with Ricki Dwyer we combined
digital fabrication and traditional basket weaving. Built in
the spirit of Sankofa an Akan word meaning "Go back and fetch it". It
embodies the need to understand your past so that you are prepared to
step into the future. Using Rhino 3D and Grasshopper, a script was
written to parametrically divide and ellipsoid surface into
a hexagonal pattern. The sections of the 748 wooden hexagons we all cut
using a 18x32 laser cutter then wrapped using traditional basket weaving.
