This is a further exploration of orfices and their functions. I have a few concept designs below. I also made a moquette for a larger piece, which was used as a prop for a video class I’m taking. I’m currently editing the ‘real’ video now, but a teaser is below. Enjoy.
These are 3-D renderings from SketchUp so I could get the concept down quickly.
So this is a rubber mold with plexi glass. I cast the 3-D print right into it to create a convex orifice. If I were to replicate this I’d give it more pitch. This is 8×10 inches, serving as both a moquette and video prop.
^^The drip on the sketch above was an afterthought. I had left over liquid rubber from a mold. I decided to add it–as a material, ignoring the color. I wouldn’t intentionally use red.
This blogpost is retrospective and direction of this work is evolving, but as seen in the sketch above, I’m thinking about a convex orifice plug, with the translucent plexi, revealing the systems of secretions.
