V. Tank began as the classic cardboard chair assignment. Through basic experiments with index cards I found an interesting vocabulary of simple folds that were both elegant and structural. As the models grew in scale, the number of folds stayed the same. The end result, a functioning cardboard chair that can support a 200lb person, had a stark quality that was reminiscent of the forms seen in old vector graphics. Thus, V. Tank emerged, with a form directly related to the cardboard model and visual cues suggestive of its digital kin.
