Taking the physical mock-up model one step further, my second project renders a pattern that evokes the same set of data from my first project.
Using 3D modelling software, Rhinoceros, and its plug-in parameter modifier, I was able to manipulate geometries on the plane. Using the parameter Voronoi, the maximum area is drawn around each point defined on the plane. I’m drawn to the mathematical and structural properties of the pattern, creating interesting dynamics between each of the defined points:
I want to use this pattern to represent the data collected. This pattern can easily be translated into a surface or screen that defines a specific architectural space. This will allow people to interact with data while navigating around the architectural installation.
