Two squares

square 01

The two wooden panels were first painted with acrylics and were then scanned and brought into the computer. The painting’s shape was used as an initial state for the differential Line Growth procedure. On each iteration the points are relaxed by distancing themselves from their neighbors. One of the frames from the simulation was exported as a vector file and burnt with a laser cutter on the 15x15cm wood panel. The total length of the line is approximately 12 meters.


square 02

The painted with acrylics wood panel came first, which was then scanned and brought into houdini. Circles were scattered on the painted surface around on the brightest area. On an iterative process, the painting’s intensity determined by how much each individual point would be pushed towards it’s normal vector and allow the shapes to flow within the painting.
