suckerPUNCH: describe your project.
skylar TIBBITS: the chrysanthemum piece was generated through networking logic. a series of points were plotted based on site constraints while a series of closed curves were generated from a nearest neighbor algorithm. the z axis scale was transformed based on nearest/farthest proximity and directly relates to programmatic space versus circulation zones. color gradients demonstrate density and proximity across the network and are reminiscent of botanic growth.
