My worlds collided when I read this months issue of One Story, ReMem. The short story, science fiction imagines a future where our memories are uploaded to a public cloud. In the story the structure of the memories is referred to as trees. It’s a good short read and another way to visualize data trees.
DANDELION STOOL BY KUO TZO JUNG
FINAL GRASSHOPPER MODEL
Using the design drivers I set out in the first part of this assignment I built a parametric model of the stool in grasshopper.
The code allows for these manipulations
DESIGN DRIVER 1 – NUMBER OF PINS
RADIUS OF PIN HEAD
LENGHT OF PIN
From these design drivers I created 5 additional Dandelion Stool family members.
FAMILY MEMBER 1 – BALL STOOL
FAMILY MEMBER 2 – DANDELION IN THE WIND
FAMILY MEMBER 3 – SMALL PIN HEAD
FAMILY MEMBER 4 – BAR STOOL
FAMILY MEMBER 5 – LARGE CENTR SPHERE
