Translations. (with Clark Thenhaus)
Alchemic drawings are made by mixing various inks with water on mylar. The drawings deny gridded or linear systems in favor of the interaction of effects producing unforeseen organizations, color palettes, and effects requiring sensing over deciphering. These analogue drawings are captured as images to be documented and manipulated using various digital tools. Through pivoting back and forth between various digital programs, the drawings developed a complexity to translate and reveal new information and ideas. By implementing Grasshopper, digital tracings of the ink on mylar were used to create the structure for a topography which was realized using CNC milling to create a translation from the analog drawing, to a digital interpretation and finally to a physical model.
