Growing Shell Forms: Progress

More progress “growing” heatsink shells – each of these is built up using successive images in Processing, then converted using Fiji (similar to how an MRI can be turned into a 3D model). They’re then cleaned up and rendered in Rhino.

The fingers will act as heatsink fins, drawing up heat. Spirals, concentric circles, and various parameters for random growth change the form.

Experimenting with sharp fins at the top.

Grid Filter: WIP

Some experiments converting images to a series of differently-sized grids. Not sure where this is headed, but I like the competing patterns and emerging forms. (Click for full size – lots more details.)

Every FM Radio Station Rendering

Rendering of a piece to (hopefully) be made soon: 93 handmade radios, playing every possible FM station. The piece changes completely when installed in a new city.
