The CELPR (Celpivor) model series evolved with the CELP model, the shape was based on the shadow of the CELP elevated garden path sculpture model. They are multi tasking sculptures that explore design and technology as a plant base endeavor, fusing the functional and sculptural. The large models were created with Rhino software (the Celpivor was created with Grasshopper Voronoi definition), 3D printed, laser cut and the Ash plywood was CNC milled . The removable inserts created for the large models are for plants (such as the natural sweetener stevia, crassula, sedums, herbs, maybe even watermelons etc ) and other necessary items serve as models for a sustainable, environmentally friendly and affordable housing development and artist zones. The small CELPR models are printed in a glow in the dark PLA (a bio degradable plant based filament) and future models could incorporate solar features or bioluminescence. They can be printed in or cast in other materials such as bamboo filament, wood filament, ceramic, recycled glass etc, the large models can be fabricated in various woods, bamboo plywood, composite boards etc. The models were created on Makerbot 3D printers, plywood CNC milling and laser cutting was done at Moonlighter Makerspace in Miami and the large model was assembled at Miami Industrial Arts.
CELPR Installation studies for sites slated for development that are waiting for permits, approval or final plans. Waiting for sustainable projects, waiting for community friendly projects, waiting for CELP.
