Description: Approxymotion is research project focusing on motion based forming. Its an attempt to apply the logic of digital design into the physical space. Traditionally in architecture forms are transferred from paper/virtual space to building through fixed shaped moulds or as an assembly of many elements. My goal was to set the mould into motion, while maintaining the parametric nature inherited from the digital model. The result is a motion-form that computes between the initial motion input, the built geometry and its material properties. The nested relation (corner cutting) from rough to smoothened layers display the gradient condition from the accuracy of robotic motion control to the averaging behavior of the elastic net.
David Letellier, Tessel, 2010, installation, 400x200x300cm, kinetic sculpture installation
Tessel is constituted of a suspended and articulated topography of 4 x 2 m, subdivided into forty triangles. Twelve of them are fitted with motors and eight are equipped with audio transducers, which transform the surface into a dynamic sonic space. A dialogue between space and sound is created through this sculptural “choreography”. Our perception is altered, as the surface slowly modifies its shape. - DL
