VORHUT [Vanguard]

Nine cylindrical steel containers sealed at either end with rubber membranes are filled with water. During the filling process of one element, both membranes are temporarily supported with wooden shuttering. Once the shuttering is removed, the water drops downward, pushing the membranes into a convex-concave form, until the membranes reach their maximum elasticity. Gravity becomes a three-dimensional form.
