The Petroglyphomat is a a mobile, computer operated milling machine, that can send messages to a distant future by engraving them into ancient monuments.
Created by Felix Luque, DWI Modular is a system comprised of 10 rhombic dodecahedrons, geometrical objects part of the family of ‘Space- ￼filling polyhedra': shapes that can be assembled to generate a tessellation of an infinite space, acting as building blocks for a sculpture generator.
The Air Above is a new project by environmental designer Michael Pecirno that explores how public sculpture can find form and purpose entirely from its context.
Rising Colorspace is a new installation by the Sonice Development duo comprised of a third ‘systemic robot’ drawing it’s rising movements as bow-like lines onto a shiny metallic wall.
“The Obverse Box” is a pico projector encased within a CNC-milled block of walnut, a “limited-edition sculptural object” to be released alongside American electronic musician Deru’s forthcoming album “1979”.
Back in July, Studio NAND with Moritz Stefaner and Drew Hemment created emoto, an online web application that captured and visualised the excitement around the Olympic Games in London. The project moved from real-time (see our post) to ”Archive” data sculpture which is now on display at WE PLAY. Based on approx. 12.5 million Twitter messages which were aggregated in real-time, all the data gathered has […]
„Start from the Beginning“ – Egyptrixx / Bible Eyes LP (Night Slugs 2011) Animated short by A. N. Fischer / Datdatdat. You should watch it in HD on Vimeo. The video examines the relationship between the simulated image and its physical manifestation. The landscape appearing in the video references one of Fischer´s relief sculptures (http://anfischer.com/new-relief-in-progress). The […]
Sketch Chair by Greg Saul is a exploration in using computation and rapid manufacturing techniques to allow users to design and build their own products or in this case their own chairs. Created in Processing, the application allows users to take part in the entire process of designing and building their own chairs. Chairs are designed using […]
Andreas has finally found time to come back to the wonderful personal project he has been working on for some time now. I thought it would be a great opportunity to introduce it to CAN readers, considering I have been closely following the development. While most of the project is still at theoretical/simulation stage, physical […]
The “Windcuts” are experiments by Miska Knapek in turning sensor data into physical instantiations, via Processing and an NC Milling machine (a computer controlled drill, for the rest of us ). Wind movement measurement data (wind direction, velocity and temperature) was used to generate a 3d form, which was then cut out of wood. The […]
