I managed to get through “In the Library of Form” but haven’t finished “The Blind Watchmaker” – these readings are super interesting and helped me further understand the breadth of Parametrics as an idea. Highly recommend reading!
I used this week to better understand how each piece will have to interact with others in order to create a stable structure. Here we see that each module will have to be able to connect to 4 other pieces: top, left, right, bottom. This iteration does NOT fulfill the 25% opacity in one direction and 75% in the other. This sketch was made in rhino, not grasshopper.
Not sure how to link the page, so here’s a screenshot:
Hi! Forgot to post the last couple of weeks so here’s it compiled”
WEEK 1 + 2 – Research
WEEK 3 – SKETCHES
Idea: create a series of vases that adapts one module (a tube) depending on # of flower stems and size of flower stem.
WEEK 4 – INITIAL ITERATION
Playing with shape of tubes, size of tubes, height of tubes, distance of tubes.
WEEK 5 – REFINING
Need to figure out how to mesh tubes together, and maybe a Boolean (?) to stop # of tubes from growing when the tubes have touched each other.
I’m Bernita :)
