suckerPUNCH: describe your project.
karmafritz: I’m interested in finding new images and ways to create new images.
I found that when used as material for collages and/or put into a different context, fractals (created with software like chaoscope and Apophysis for example) seem more natural, scetch-like and meaningfull.
There are a lot of amazing artists/coders who tweak algorithms to create their art.
I’m no programmer, i combine and tweak (sometimes coded) images more as a painter, until they look right to me.
The concept behind the building lies within the enclosure of the building which can alter temperatures of the building by pumping different color fluids through ETFE plastic tubing. If the plants that are inhabited in the building need more sunlight, transparent water is pumped through. If a shading for plants is required, darker fluid is pumped through creating infinite possibilities to how a space can be lit. Complimenting the lighting possibilities will be a communal water heating system that is also embedded within the enclosure.
