NYCCT symposium & exhibition INTERSECTIONS: Building Interdisciplinary Pedagogy | Building Integrated Practice, on June 1st, 2012
Layered relationships incorporating synaptic impulses, behavioral dependencies, tectonic resistance & temporal latency converge, producing a space of emergent surface patterns. A resistive skin dances to an adaptive pseudo-aperiodic rhythm generated with Maya’s simulation and animation tools. The presence of time shifts from a linear index of progressing behavior to a generative component with instantaneous emergence. The E:SRS employs Maya’s expression engine to generate micro-scale relationships among distinct surface geometry families. Synaptic signals inform each family to pulse, scale, translate and contract within bounded randomly generated ranges. The surface searched the extents of constrained deformation, probing behavioral possibilities. Dynamic simulation tools: particle systems, proxy geometry linking & tectonic spring systems produce latent temporal rhythms that propagate and converge across the active surface. Expressions; faces emerge within the behavioral matrix to explore infinitely variable, constrained, spatial pattern generation.
The result is a pseudo-modularized paneling system generating quick infinite surface and formal variation straight through to production. Material expressions, material behavior.
