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.
Some in-progress images of a new project, commissioned for the Digital Spring Media Art Festival in Austria in March. Above, a rendering of a 3D-printed copper heatsink/shell; below some sketches in Processing exploring how to grow the layers of the shell.
Some renderings of the upcoming White Noise Boutique, including cabinets, shelving, and other furniture.
Weird half-3D map of Minneapolis from Bing Maps.
Screenshot of a 3D scan of a leaf pile and the very weird texture file [download the OBJ file].
An image from the archives.
Photocopy of a screenshot of CAD software, via this patent: “Method and apparatus for geometric variations to integrate parametric computer aided design with tolerance analyses and optimization”.
Renderings for a store selling boutique white noise – includes lathe-cut records, specialized algorithm- and radiation-based noise generation, and a faraday cage for data privacy.

Renderings of measuring devices in an oak case – if each square formed a pyramid to the center of the earth, the enclosed shape would contain 1 gram of soil for every 0/1 on my hard drive.
Designing some small chair/stools today; will be CNC-cut from birch plywood and used in a performance with human computers.
