Fala Fazer / Speak Make, 2019

Audio, Rhino, Grasshopper

A project in process.Speak Make is a set of parametrically designed sculptures whose forms, texturing, and layout are controlled by speech. A Grasshopper/Rhino algorithm takes sound from the computer’s microphone and uses the parameters of that audio to arrange shapes derived from Interstitial Castings. Interstitial Castings are sculptures of the negative space between two people engaged in intimate gestures. They are transductions of ephemeral moments of gestural communication. Speak Make uses 2-d interpretations of the 3-D sculptures to create new sculptures in Rhino’s model space. They are designed for 3-d printing/ CNCing.

Speak/ Make works with shapes generated by the process of Interstitial Casting. This process creates sculptures that capture the negative space between two people engaged in intimate gestures like air-kissing or pushing one another. Interstitial Castings transduce ephemeral moments of gestural communication into physical forms.

Project Background

Speak/ Make works with shapes generated by the process of Interstitial Casting. This process creates sculptures that capture the negative space between two people engaged in intimate gestures like air-kissing or pushing one another. Interstitial Castings transduce ephemeral moments of gestural communication into physical forms.

How it works

It is a piece of code that translates speech into physical objects, generating parametrically designed sculptures whose forms, texturing, and layout are controlled by auditory gestures.

Prototypes

Speak/Make generates physical objects through a Grasshopper/Rhino algorithm that takes sound from the computer’s microphone and uses the frequencies, volume, and rhythms of that audio to arrange and transform shapes derived from past intimate encounters between bodies.
