CompuForm Project 1 (Midterm) · posted by vaibhav bhawsar Oct 16, 2007
A Radiolaria inspired form generator. Some of the most inspiring Radiolaria studies I came across were made by Ernst Haeckel who was a german biologist and artist.
To me the mineral skeletons of radiolaria are interesting formal structures that I can attempt to generate using what we have thus far covered in class. These skeletons have a very prominent symmetry and periodic form. My explorations will cover some of these concepts/techniques for generating computational forms-
- periodic functions – generating unit shapes
- bezier curves – expressing the periodic functions using bezier curves to form the skeleton units
- operating on line segments with custom strokes
- symmetrical – rotating the skeleton units to construct shapes
