The next phase of the project involved re interpreting the existing panel. After photographing the first panel and talking with Matias, it seemed the project could address the issues of structure and light with the idea that one side of the panel would be perforated to influence the articulation of the surface conditions on the other side. After watching countless processing tutorials I stumbled upon a script that would interpret the pixels in an image based on their color value. I photographed the first panel and inverted the image to reverse the conditions of light on the what was already milled.
|Gradient Base Surface and Manipulations|
|Undulating Base Surface and Manipulations|
|Combination Base Surface and Manipulations|
A series of base surfaces are manipulated through the distortion of interior control curves. As the curves are split apart, "scars" are created. These scars are result in either a positive or negative local curvature, separate from the curvature of the surface they are derived from. the relationship between these curves changes through rotation of the curves control points about various central axes. The result in an intensification of the curvature in certain areas, while other areas show a decrease in the intensity of the curvature.
This project is exploring the relationship/binary between landscape as continuos field and architectural spaces as singular objects. Project01 acted as a preliminary experiment in translating maya models into physical constructions. In the following phase, a second layer – deformed through manipulation in processing – will superimpose itself over the existing 'landscape,' creating opportunities for inhabitation within these overlaps.
