Audio, Rhino, Grasshopper
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 3-D sculptures to create new sculptures in Rhino’s model space. They are designed for 3-d printing/ CNCing.
