YTs


YTs isa shape exploration project that tackles the topic "machine invented", generative form versus human design. Our process was based on "database modeling", in which we made a database of technical 3d objects and primitives.
They are intersected with each other at randomly variable scales and angles and shape combinations. This was one of our first processes that is a dedicated algorithm to create unlimited variation and unforeseen designs, yet within a premeditated design language.

The process is a mix between a synthetic machine shape vision and human design thinking. The algorithm creates approximately one shape per second. Some are selected from the process and 3d printed as physical objects. The shapes appear to have recognisable features, yet their silhouette varies drastically from different viewing angles.

Collaboration with Programmer Lukas Latz.
