suckerPUNCH: describe your project.
edward BECKER: As a response to the geometric theories of Gottfried Semper, specifically the idea of organic matter unfolding from standard base geometries through standard processes, this project is specifically focused on the creation of base components that through their transformation-mirroring,rotating,duplication- generate compact and fundamentally similar objects.
The components, each designed with a geometrically unique profile, become standardized through their multiplications and transformation. Unlike the geometrically ubiquitous nature of Legos, these component systems become homogeneous through their dissimilarities_Studies on systems, relationships, and aggregations.
