No Me Moleste Mosquito(es)

Heres a study looking at agent based topologies and patterns. It's a first stab at having agents "construct" spatial/geometrical order based on the activation of certain steering rules at each position in time.

At each iteration, each agent is influenced by a dominant steering behavior. If each agent could then construct space based on the dominant behavior at a given point in time, various spatial typologies could be tied to the specific rules imbedded in the agents themselves. Bottoms up.

Forced Textiles

Here's an early study of some force based pattern making for an upcoming canopy project. As the surface approaches a minimal configuration, the pattern becomes a force diagram of the surface it occupies. Yay relationships.

Heres some early work with continuous automata. Because each cell holds a value within a real number range, it could serve as an interesting approach to spatial partitioning by extracting a certain range of values from the field at each state. If nothing else it'd make a lovely quilt.

Dear internet, 

     Without being too long winded about it, I'd like to introduce the blog as an ongoing repository of computational design sketches. Most of the content will likely be early stage works in progress in an effort to prioritize driving logics and underlying processes of spatial organization. To get the ball rolling, heres a link to some of my recent work on Vimeo.


Birth of the Blog

“The human mind delights in finding pattern – so much so that we often mistake coincidence or forced analogy for profound meaning.  No other habit of thought lies so deeply within the soul of a small creature trying to make sense of a complex world not constructed for it.”

-Stephen Jay Gould
