BIG BRIGHT STEEL
Big Bright Steel is over 7500 lbs. of laser cut, repurposed ‘scrap‘ steel from the automotive engine industry. Riley and Kennerk’s use of this scrap steel extends the notion of economy evident in the layout of the various parts by engineers who plan the laser cuts to maximize the gain and minimize waste. The structured randomness and dynamic color-plays of the uniquely patterned steel sheets embody the notion of schemata as concept.
