Dutch design house Demakersvan has a concept for a "Lace Fence" on their website. This is near and dear to my heart as a ground for exploration. From their website:
We are plain but love the impossible.We believe in fusing talented writers,
We respect the old but want the new.
We want to challenge, confront the normal, the accepted, the expected.
filmmakers, artists, and scientists
into a movement that will go beyond ego;
That will create a super story teller.
There is no direct link to the lace fence I can provide, but the thumbnail link is clearly visible on their homepage.
