My Code

"The form of an object is a 'diagram of forces, in this sense, at least, that from it we can judge or deduce the forces that are acting or have acted upon it". 

D'Arcy Wentworth Thompson

Consists of a unique, personalize body adornment composed through the gathering of real data representing the imperfections of the body.

Using these points as the basis of the Voronoi and Delaunay systems, which define the concept of form generated in many structures  and the beautiful representation of spatial analysis and composition of patterns found in nature.

This project focusses on capturing the information contained within the human body. "Identity can be defined by who we are and who we aspire to be".

Like DNA the traits we born with we have little choice over. These characteristics can be recorded and provide a unique code that can be translated into unique pieces without the need to deliberate over an abundance of choice. This is not an aspirational choice but a body adornment defined by who we are therefore unique and customisable.

Celebrating the imperfections of the body of each individual. This exploration demonstrate that each piece can grow according to the unique traits of an individuals identity.

Using generative design we can translate 2D data into 3D form in a customisable way and transform digital information into physical fabrication.
