A well made polygonal mesh is defined by its relationships between vertices, edges and the faces they create. Low numbers of polygons and well placed supporting edges not only produce efficient forms, the proportions within the related points are also complimentary to one another. In computer modeling, the totality of relationship necessarily creates a grace in constitution.
As I built structures and study relationships, I find increasing joy in the computer’s ability to reveal nature. The more I learn about physics, the more I believe it can produce the consummate artwork of the future. Nature has an elegance in its making which can be seen in the math of its design. The software, as it is also the combined efforts of its contributors, allows me to intersect physical laws with yet unrelated concepts.
I am using Maya to create a lager painting table whose stance is like an animal, dialectic, teleological in direction, responding to difference. A few seconds of video are below. Composed of straight and curve, in difference and intersection, the structure of the table is expressed through the dynamics of flow I have seen to produce the most compelling forms. This vessle animal is one we can travel with, to institutions and outlying areas where the deepest aspects of our generative humanity can be seen clearly pouring over the surface of an object to honors us in it’s awareness of the medium we are in.
