At the Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning Liberty Research Annex, an installation was designed merging technology and creativity. This avant-garde exhibit showcases the innovative use of 5 Axis CNC'd foam, meticulously forming wads of textural material that challenge conventional notions of spatial design. The installation, a testament to the intersection of art and technology, invites viewers to explore the intricate details and dynamic forms resulting from precision CNC milling.

Each foam creation serves as a sculptural expression, marrying the tactile and visual elements of textural material. The interplay of light and shadow on these CNC'd forms creates a mesmerizing display, engaging visitors in a multisensory experience. This cutting-edge installation not only pushes the boundaries of traditional artistic mediums but also reflects the forward-thinking ethos of Taubman College in embracing contemporary approaches to architecture and design.
