Digital Grotesque is the first fully immersive, solid, human-scale, enclosed structure that is entirely 3D printed out of sand. This structure, measuring 16 square…

Dominik Zausinger‘s insight:

I know the works of Michael Hansmeyer and Benjamin Dillenburger for quite a while now. But this artwork brings algorythmic design and 3D-printing to a new level.OK, you can see the gaps where pieces are fitted together but solving this is just an issue of time…

The color information of the wood sample images are translated from the spatial domain into the frequency domain by applying a Fast Fourier Transformation (FFT). Regularly reappearing features of the image are captured and described by their wave length, amplitude, and phase angle.

By crossing over high and low frequencies from different inputs, by flipping rows to create new symmetry relationships or by applying filters, new and somewhat intriguing kinds of meta-wood are being synthesized following a hidden musical score. The results are not just mirrored but interwoven, not perfectly symmetrical but a bit like a piece of wood cut open and the two halves put side by side – similar but not equal.

FabPod – Daniel Davis

See on Scoop.itzado

The FabPod is an acoustically tuned meeting room housed within an open-plan office at the RMIT Design Hub. The geometry of the FabPod derives from research we had previously conducted on the sound scattering properties of hyperboloids as part of the Responsive Acoustic Surface workshop (2011) – itself inspired by Gaudí’s use of hyperboloids.
