Fluid Vase is an object designed by simulating fluid action. The aim was to translate actions commonly associated with an object into the object itself, which in this case is the action of pouring water into a vase. A high speed camera was used to capture actual water motion in vases of different shapes at 500 frames per second. Simulations in Processing were then based on these footages to produce a 3D virtual mesh.
In this vision, consumers would have various options such as the speed and volume of water, and be able to select a frame from the simulation. Production is then done on demand using 3D printing.
