Ball and Nogues describe their 2007 “Liquid Sky” installation in the courtyard of MoMA/P. S. 1. They discuss their 2008 “Unseen Current” installation at the Extension Gallery in Chicago. This project consists of catenaries structures built with strings. Ball and Nogues point out how they not only created digital tools of design but also created physical tools of production. During a question and answer session, Ball and Nogues stress the importance of being a builder.

Reiser continues his lecture by presenting his proposal for the Graz Music Theater, discussing the relationship between this investigation and future explorations. He presents the final submission, and goes on to discuss the more speculative aspects of the project, including a shell-like spaceframe which exhibited a structural aggregation of catenary curves in a field.
