by Jenny Wu Jenny Wu, a partner at Oyler Wu Collaborative, documents the process from design through fabrication of their latest installation, Screenplay, to be featured at the upcoming Dwell on Design 2012. Part 5: Designing the Tools. How to start? At the beginning of every construction project, I always feel a sense of anxiety about the road ahead, especially in terms of the complexity of the fabrication, the workload, and, nearly always, the insanely tight schedule. Fortunately, this is the very moment that my partner, Dwayne Oyler, really excels. I often marvel at the fact that he can conceptualize every step of the build so well that he is able to troubleshoot the problems in advance, build the necessary tools or jigs to speed up fabrication, and is able to turn a simple utilitarian object into a design element. Given the unique and varying nature of our work, the construction process becomes its own kind of design project, with each assignment bringing a new set of geometric problems, connection issues, and material challenges.
