Gaudism is about my two catalonian idols [rather obvious…] and another take on ‘shape as record’ methodology i’m developing over last two years. This generative-hand-made hybrid lets one playfully explore catenary structure principles as well as browse through interferences of field intensities. These behaviors are recorded as a shape.

here is a screencast from the app. notice different masses indicated by circles of different sizes.

and here is a more refined, interactive 3d model
