aLittleBitMore

December 15, 2010

trying out functionality of  o_a_o_d initiative, while working on some issues of my thesis project.

surreal potential of generative techniques in architecture is definitely underestimated.

shape is an isosurface around multiple particles moving in the perlin noise space. paneling(:)) scale and color results from the field characteristics as well. even though it’s rather cliche: agents, fields,panels etc, i think it’s nice to interact with…

aLittleBitMore refers to early practice of transparency and code sharing started most probably by Marc Fornes  in 2005 and then followed by very many designers and students. What it became recently seems to be a sign of very natural inertia of such systems. each follower tries to follow other followers. as a result there is a lot of  researchers investigating exactly the same thing: how to make panels on nurbs surface… no offense, i’m part of it.

it would be desirable to go a bit beyond this stagnation. seemingly there are related conclusions that people make globally resulting from exposure to the same stimuli:  music, movies, software somehow align trajectories of designers thinking. seeking uniqueness in that homogeneity becomes rather fruitless. What stays truly unique is the immediate context each of designers operates within. family, friends, local connections that can result in small commissions. deep knowledge about own territory resulting from long term observation that cannot be compared to browsing Mumbai climate data from London…

culture of sharing design methods connected with linking back their material results can not only help finding applications for crazy amount of investigations that currently stay only as pictures. it can offer feedback for designers, making them lead real researches.  furthermore it can inspire communities to use fresh design methods…

a lot of people currently talk about open design or work on systems enabling it. that’s why i’m so optimistic about it.

recording CA unfolding with time as z-axis. these are not illustrations to Meyrink’s famous book:) but ambition they represent seems to be tragic in a very much related way.

again thanks to toxi.

this rhizome grows only if PIR sensor doesn’t detect movement [either nobody is in the room, or you stay still]
amount of light measured by photocell influences branches girth. in this way, resulting form is a diagram of changing environmental conditions.
