Growth Sculpture

Growth Sculpture

This project explores processes on natural differential growth behavior and use robotic print specific glass-like material (PETG), physicalize computational aesthetics on transparent matters, and visualize specific growth patterns.

Biologically inspired computing brings new characteristics for crafting form. This series sculpture explores processes on natural differential growth behavior in generative rule, which cause structure and pattern to emerge into growth patterns.

This work simulates the way biological things in nature grow, and use robotic print specific glass-like material (PETG), which physicalize computational aesthetics on transparent matters, and visualize specific growth patterns.
