A series of rotational moulded pieces were made in the experimental production setup. Says Frye, "By using a self-made rotational moulding machine I can produce variation instead of repetition."

The moulds were made from simple geometric patterns and the material is a special plaster that hardens within a short time. "I also added wooden parts and other materials. The hollow objects were cut to create a vase/dish/container."

"The Machine, for me, is more than just a tool: I designed the machine itself by using basic characteristics of a piece of furniture such as brass fittings, multiplex and steel tubes."

The Improvisation Machine and Improvised Objects will be shown at the Istanbul Design Biennial, at Adhocracy curated by Joseph Grima from October 10 to December 13, 2012.
