NIPPS4

Another Threepress experiment.

spikey

Short animation of a spiked ball appearing to grow. Mostly the scale and rotation of a crumple effect is changing and that gives the appearance of the spikes growing sort of. https://vimeo.com/578290526

What now

Colorful and distorted view of a landscape and a dome. The strobe effect is from alternating a black and white version of the same animation with the full color one making it seem like the lights are flashing. Silly but somewhat effective. https://vimeo.com/705129453

self float

This is an experiment using ThreePress plugin for WordPress. GLB files allow for textures, colors, and bump maps. It's much more robust than using STL or OBJ files. Anyway here's the silly combo of two Jenga towers and a surface self portrait. You can mouse around or finger my face on mobile to change the… Continue reading self float

Green Flowering (flowing)

A slight variation one the previous post. This one is green instead of pink. I printed a green one so I wanted to see it green.

2Flowing

More flowery stuff. Not sure how this happened. It references some deep seated unease with hippy culture. But I made so I have to show it. This started as a very mechanical and industrial looking object and slowly softened and mutated to being a flower like thing. Flowers and gears are similar or at least… Continue reading 2Flowing

Returning

Eight is an interesting number. There are eight corners on a cube. Six face and eight vertexes. Math is confusing and not at all precise. Numbers tell you things but not always the thing you think they will tell you. Words tell you things to. Images are ambiguous at best and misleading most of the… Continue reading Returning

Bnip

The Bnip. Short for two other words or a four letter acronym. I don't know. It's not that important. It's a simple shape. A cone with ball at the top. Subdivided and smoothed and then faceted again. Regular polygons make it easy to print. It's still got angles but feels smooth when printed with silky… Continue reading Bnip

Bucket

Working with OBJ files and textures. This is a colorful mashup of a drawing and a faceted bucket (cylinder without a top). It's somewhat random as I removed the actual baked texture that had some vague relationship to the shape with an arbitrary multicolor swatch. It makes no sense but it is more playful than… Continue reading Bucket
