packing hacking 01 / laser relief

the packing hacking work series came first to life during my “generator x” workshop participation in 2008. having the first time access to a laser cutter,
the final idea of 3-5 layered plywood bas relief emerged throughout many different experiments with layered laser cutted forms, different composing and coloring techniques.
2 years later i followed this concept and realized a series of works at 80 x 60 cm, layered in (acryl) colored 4mm plywood, differently laser-cutted and /or engraved using different circle packing algorithms.
it is now still in process and also developed to 3D objects (LINK)

perlin scape 1

perlin scape (15663), 2011

the perlin scape 1 series (2011-2015) is based on a perlin noise algorithm, which generates color map dependent line by line sequences of either  rectangles or any shapes into a 2D (x,y) matrix.
this software works with different keyboard input values to compose a rather painting like image out of different color maps and values. different map arrays are called by random, noise and/or manual order.

corrosive landscape II

 

corrosive landscape is a series of work based on landscape photography. during the last couple of years, living north of berlin, close to the schorfheide, many landscape photos arose.
finally code structures were developed to read color maps and image structures for further generative editing.
the corrosive landscape algorithm generates transparent ellipses, which go virtually into endless width, merging with each other, creating a paint like horizantal pattern.
the final software works with different keyboard and mouse input values for real time recording.

DATA-DADA

3739_packing_neu_3

 

 

DATA-DADA is a software based interconected packing algorithm, which reads different color map arrays, either by random, noise and/or manual values.
it consists of:
– predefined color tables.
– randomly mixed scales of predefined color tables
– random color picks out of algorithmically manipulated color arrays.

30 keyboard keys were linked to the color tables, which i assambled and collected together over the years out of all kind of material.
4 keyboard keys are for controlling size manipulation, transparent shutter and the recording control.

iteration circle 1

 

the herewith used  iteration principle consists of a circles or rectangle within a X Y axis grid, which are devided in number,
size and applied with a certain color map and another on/off state. each repetition of the process results in one iteration, which is used as the starting point for the next iteration. between 6 upto 9 levels are recorded.

different keyboard input values are used for a layered image build up.

size and applied with a certain color map and another on/off state. each repetition of the process results in one iteration,
which is used as the starting point for the next iteration. between 6 upto 9 levels are recorded.

e-pastel 2

32858_e_pastel_14

 

the e-pastel series consists of a X Y axis grid of bezier vector curves. a seperate vector curve class defines all vector properties such as color,
transparency and/or stroke weight. to later position them within different grid arrays.
different keyboard input values are used for a layered image build up.

depthMatrix

05.07

 

depthMatrix is based on an algorithm, which generates color map dependent diverticulum like reliefs within  a 3 dimensional environment.
this software works with different keyboard input values to compose a rather painting like image out of different color maps.
color values of these map arrays are called by random, noise and/or manual order.

noise scape 2

41496-NoiseGrid_col_larger_points_square2_small7_2

 

noise scape 2 works with a perlin noise XY structure as noise scape I does, but has additionally another grid value over it.
the application is based on an algorithm, which generates color map dependent line by line sequences of either ellipses or rectangles on a 2 dimensional surface.
this software works with different keyboard input values to compose a rather painting like image out of different color maps. these map arrays are called by random, noise and/or manual order.

 

 

 

 

 

noise scape 1

55564_NoiseGrid_col_03

 

noise scape 1 series is based on a perlin noise XY grid, an array of pre defined color maps and different keyboard and mouse values for recording layered generations.
