The latest iteration of a decade-long investigation into modular construction systems by Canadian Artist Jesse Jackson, Marching Cubes is an algorithm-inspired syntax for building volumes from 3D printed blocks.
Created by Juncheng Chen, Siyuan Jing and Lydia Zhou at the Bartlett School of Architecture (Interactive Architecture Lab), this project explores possibilities in mobile structures by investigating various strategies for locomotion.
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.
Work in progress by Daniel Belcher is this app for iPad at the intersection of sketching, coding, and parametric modeling. Here is how he describes it: I’ve been working on an app for the iPad that relies on some interactions that will hopefully lead to a balance between “manual” and parametric modeling. Grasshopper and SketchUp are two […]
Commissioned by the Greater London Authority as part of Wonder series that are celebrating Olympics and Paralympics, Bloom is designed and developed by Alisa Andrasek and Jose Sanchez from The Bartlett School of Architecture at UCL. Designed in neon pink (the official Olympics color), Bloom is conceptualized as an urban toy that seeks the engagement of […]
Caten (2012) is the latest kinetic sound installation by David Letellier, Berlin-based sound artist, audio-visual performer and CAN regular. Site-specific to Chapelle du vieux St-Sauveur, a 12th century Gothic chapel in Caen (FR), Letellier sculpted a delicate veil of 300 thin wires, filling the historic site with a magical epiphany. Suspended from two ropes, each […]
Approxymotion and MisPortraits are two projects by Peter A Vikar currently an ESTm post-graduate studies at Sci-Arc, Los Angeles, designing material interactions with six-axis robot arms. Approxymotion is research project focusing on motion based forming while MisPortraits looks at the levels of accidentally with 6 axis robots doing feltpen graphics.
Created by Tangible Intervention (the public art arm of Tangible Interaction) in collaboration with origami artist, Joseph Wu, Jelly Swarm is a public artwork for the Vancouver Aquarium in BC, Canada. The installation features 94 folded origami jellies, each containing an LED light module, suspended from a custom aluminum structure. Inspired by the luminescent jellies […]
This is a preliminary test model of a kinetic pavilion by Yannick Bontinckx and Elise Vanden Elsacker. The final model will contain 28 servo motors controlled by an Arduino Mega and a Duemilanove board all connected to Rhino & Grasshopper via FireFly. The demo movie below includes a TouchOSC & gHowl setup which allows the structure to be controlled via […]
