Dendrite was inspired by the aggregate, branching growth of dendritic crystals and coral. It is based on diffusion limited aggregation, a process whereby randomly moving particles gradually accrete into complex configurations by colliding and sticking to one another.
A jewelry collection based on the process of vein formation in leaves. Our simulation models how the flow of growth horomones causes complex networks of veins to form. The resultant pieces explore the breadth of possible patterning and create impossible, unnatural forms combining the geometric and organic.
Hyphae is a collection of 3D printed artifacts constructed of rhizome-like networks. Inspired vein structures, we created a simulation which uses physical growth principles to build sculptural, organic structures. Starting from an initial seed and a surface, we grow a hierarchical network where nodes constantly branch and merge.
Ammonite is inspired by the interlocking suture patterns found in the fossilized cephalopods called ammonites. The forms themselves are grown through a simulation of dendritic solidification, a process related to supercooled crystal growth.
Jigsaw puzzles for the 21st century! Each generative puzzle is a one of a kind creation with unique art and pieces. Our goal was to marry the artistry of traditional, hand-crafted jigsaw puzzles with the possibilities of new technologies.
