This project is a remake of a parametric skinning system, the initial application of which is a series of vases, to bowls, to plates. At the core of the vessels of everyday use are surface curvature and porosity, these become the only distinctions between the functional applications of these object.

The first analysis of the sprawl farm typologies attempts to look into the regional market networks as well as local 'per farm' navigation methods. These initial investigations catalog similar underlying structures that have developed globally in the context of the farm. By reducing these tendencies as units with embedded properties, these elements are staged for future crossover which will attempt to exploit latent tendencies to maximize efficiency

Developed as a tangent from a small component of an outside project, this sketch speaks to the reciprocity between the hand and the machine. Produced with a Wacom tablet by hand and fed into an authored image processing script the result is a simple statement, that which is lost in medium and machine may only be opportunity for unexpected beauty. While the sketch is primitive its properties are robust.

the link is to a newly completed online sketch which allows anyone to create a pattern which could be used to generate a carbon fiber or S-glass composite shell. A completed piece can be viewed at neoarchaic.net. More to come...

A slight deviation to something a bit more subtle, technique of construction and efficiency of data presentation. After spending a few minutes looking through IKEA instructions... and quickly abandoning them for common sense, composition of data seems much more relevant. Composing a drawing that informs the construction, use, and potentials of a design. As seems to be the growing theme of this page, this is just an early stage... more to come.
