Babushka



My and my partner in crime, Mikael Ling’s, entry to the Art Fund Pavilion competition. The design is heavily based on the requirements of easy transportation and storage, quick assembly and a digital fabrication process in which each box can be cnc-milled out of standard sized plywood sheets.

Box-morph



More grasshopping. A general box-to-surface-morph definition. Any object can be spread out over a surface. With its bounding box as a reference, the object is morphed to match the boxes created on the target surface. The object can then also be scaled according to various parameters.

Grasshopping

For the last week, I have been trying to get to know Grasshopper a little bit better. Simple operations, which in rhinoscript requires quite a lot of code to accomplish, are set up easily but I haven’t really figured out how to best handle more complex functions yet. Especially how to deal with nested data lists and extracting specific values. But I guess I will get there in time.

Underneath here is a render from my surface-noise definition. An attractor point influence the amplitude of the noise. Additionally, I have revisited my triangulation script and set up a grasshopper variation, also with an attractor point to control the angle of the rotation of the triangles.
