With Bated Breath…

I dove into Project #2 so quickly that it slipped my mind to post final images of Project #1.

Without further ado:

A short video of the grasshopper controls that achieve the tessellated variability seen in the final patterns (video shows manipulation of both the 2-D and 3-D forms):

After Thoughts

Generally I’m pleased with the outcome. My goal was to develop a form that could be used to transmit information; whether in a topographic form expression or through a sort of steady-state pixel. I feel that with the definition I wrote I can successful control discrete enough aspects of the individual tiles that given the right constructed scale image or text or form data could be expressed clearly. If I was to continue with this project I would like to explore a reduction in scale. Currently the tiles are fixed on a 4″ x 4″ base. This too could become a manipulable variable. The inclusion of multiple tile sizes (four 4″ in an 8″ block, four 2″ in a four inch block –you get the idea) would permit much finer resolution. On to Project #2…
