Project Description

Portfolio | Interstitial Castings

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.

Fala/ Fazer Speak/ Make Prototype 1 2019
Brazilian Marceneira Wood
4.75 x 8.25 x 1.125 inches

A project in process. Speak Make is a set of parametrically designed objects whose forms, texturing, and layout are controlled by audio input. The process takes sound from the computer’s microphone and uses the parameters of that audio to arrange various interstitial casting forms in space. This prototype is one output from the program and was cut on a CNC.

Fala Fazer / Speak Make Prototype 2, 2019
Brazilian Piquiá Wood
4.5 x 2.125 x 2.125 inches

A project in process. Speak Make is a set of parametrically designed objects whose forms, texturing, and layout are controlled by audio input. The process takes sound from the computer’s microphone and uses the parameters of that audio to arrange various interstitial casting forms in space. This prototype is one output from the program and was cut on a CNC lathe.
