Micro – macro

This first experiment is inspired by microscopic pictures of rose skins. On the point of view of scripting, it uses cones replication inside a double loop.

The surfaces of those flowers take this shape becasue of their need to be porous and release fragrance. In this way, the plant can attract insects and the surface, to the naked eye, has a smooth and shadow-less appearance.

“Option Explicit” is a series of scripts developed in collaboration with Ryoko Ikeda that deals with organic, abstract form and contemplates experiments that have been dealt with in aspects like geometry, light and shadows.

The intermediate goal is computationally explore shape creation, using the implementation of VBScripting that is offered inside Rhinoceros 4.0. The more far-seeing goal is to investigate algorithmic relationships among entities that usually surround us and re-establish their creative articulations, to simply allow us to deal with complexity.
