This work was a study of the 2-D development of a “machine language” utilising Kitbashing techniques and their transition into 3-D assemblages using advanced voxel modelling and polygon processing techniques.
Digital modelling usually assumes an attitude of building a new world from scratch. Instead in this work, I thought differently about the existing world and reformated existing objects into new relationships. The peculiarity of formal assumptions in voxel modelling, where contour and figure takes a backseat to mass and resolution was observed.

Investigating the potentials of chemical experimentation: analogue methods were used to create a set of chemical images through techniques including mixing, synthesising, cooking and freezing. These images were then digitised and transformed into drawings with an emphasis on highlighting emerging patterns, structures, shapes, textures, and colours. These processes were brought together, to produce the final object.
NATURE INSPIRED PATTERN GENERATION
Critic by Birgul Colakoglu, I.T.U., 2016
The project aimed to produce a generative surface that consists of a single component. The initial geometry that formed the main component was Narcomedusae [a group of jellyfish]. Through the analysis and regeneration of the jellyfish geometry, a new pattern arose. Although the new form seemed organic and to grow naturally, it was controlled and shaped by artificial rules.
There were four layers of arcs, formed within 30° angle slices, creating the outer circles. There were two layers of arches, formed within a 45° angle slice, shaping the inner circles. The combination of 6 rings, from the same centre point, composed the Nature Inspired Patterncomponent. This arrangement was manipulated with Delaunay Triangulation generating a surface.
