Exodesic: Structures, Tumbleweeds, Electronics
Exodesic is an architectural, electronic, and environmental exploration of forms generated from plant life native to the Southwest. Physical models are built and surfaced using tumbleweed segments and handmade papers. These models are then used to generate electronic graphics, animations, and 3D presentations. Both physical and digital models are loosely based on structural principles of triangulation (like that in a bridge's truss), giving strength to individually weak branches. The resulting models and graphics illustrate abstract, multidirectional forms that bridge natural and virtual worlds as well as produce experimental forms for the investigation of architectural elements such as canopies, tents, roofs, and buildings.
