The intention of this project was (and still is) to explore the possibilities of using complex and seemingly organic forms in a typical digital workflow for designers, be they Landscape architects, Architects, sculptors or product designers. This includes the capturing, creation, generation, and visualisation of these forms as well as the potentialities and limitations of different techniques. For the ANZASCA conference I collaborated with two other staff members Nikolay Popov who has an interest in cellular automata and Brett Orams who is has an interest in procedural modelling. Together we wrote a very detailed paper that I presented at the conference. I’m currently looking for other conferences to present more detailed studies of certain aspects of this original paper (which was very well received).
