title Crafting Soft Geometry: Form and Materials Informing Analog and Digital Craft Processes
source SIGraDi 2014 [Proceedings of the 18th Conference of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics - ISBN: 978-9974-99-655-7] Uruguay- Montevideo 12,13,14 November 2014, pp. 183-186
summary This paper outlines a methodology that adds to current craft-based discourse in the digital age. It proposes pedagogy centered on a constant examining of the parametric relationships between form, material, and load. The paper illustrates how materials and loads were integrated as datasets into “soft geometry” modeling and installation pipelines that further explore a hybrid process that incorporates materials and craftsmanship. The results expand the boundary of conventional static form and spatial interaction within the deformation rules (material and force) while seeking form through the exploration of both digital simulation and analog techniques.
