    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Somansh ARORA: The project investigates the use of color as not only an aesthetic addition to the object but also as a physical and material entity.

    Digital data is used as a starting point for the aesthetic approach, which is later translated into analog. Color is used as a material agency for translating the digital information onto the object by continuously registering data, resulting in a hybrid tectonic assemblage. Robotic precision is combined with the inherent entropic agency of the material to allow for both controlled and uncontrolled results. The generative processes discovered in this investigation allow for the production of new complex and ambivalent objects.
