Created by Madeline Gannon, a doctoral student studying generative fabrication and computational design in the CMU School of Architecture, Reverberating Across the Divide project aims to reconnect digital and physical contexts through a custom chronomorphologic modeling environment.
The process includes a three phase workflow (3D scanning, 3D modeling, and 3D printing) to enable a designer to craft intricate digital geometries around pre-existing physical contexts. Using Processing and Toxiclibs, Madeline designed a virtual agent, resembling a squid like form, which through interaction with Kinect is pulled through space and time leaving traces to create intricate geometries. These complex geometries can be then exported and finally 3d printed.
Created by Madeline Gannon for the 2018 Annual Meeting of New Champions at the The World Economic Forum, in Tianjin, China, Manus is a set of ten industrial robots that are programmed to behave like a pack of animals.
