Charles Duvall is an industrial designer (www.duvalldesign.com) and artist who works with both tensioned fabric membranes, and engineered steel support structures.
He started Artacero to explore various ways to create sculptures by generating patterns and layers by repeating the connection detail throughout each structure.
Each sculpture has a distinct means of connection, and some structures have two means of connection which are interdependent. The sculptures incorporate an expandable system of connection and repetition. Each sculpture can be expanded in a limited yet predictable way.
The base of each sculpture is a seperate aspect which adds stability and allows the sculpture to balance, and stand freely.
