Info

1_
i explored the behaviour of a 3D printer and its filament (developing my own software in the process) to create a new kind of sculpture, native to the medium.

2_
behaviours discovered:
1. surfaces can be continuous or chaotic
2. lines can be rigid or organic
3. filament can be closely controlled or let free to find its own form

3_
construction methodologies:
1. "strings and blobs"
2. letting filament pile up on itself
3. under-constrained wall-building
4. natural collapse

4_ outcome
series of sculptures are discovered by exploring the parameter space of a base model
