A digital fine art practice is at the nexus of some powerful dichotomies: the subjective versus the objective, the passions versus reason, and art versus science among them. This research uncouples such polarities and confuses them. It confuses the theoretical with the practical, the rational with the irrational. It confuses art, science and technology. And it does so to advance a distinct approach to making sense.
Random 3D model downloaded and reduced to a single vector. That reduction is undone one vector at a time until a form begins to take shape. A wireframe is then extracted from the model, and passed to a Grasshopper definition that automatically calculates and models the nodes.
The nodes are fabricated with a 3d printer. The vectors are measured and aluminium pipe is cut to those dimensions. The pipe and their respective nodes are fitted together.
I never know what the model is or where it comes from.
