"If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours."Henry David Thoreau
Jazzing up visual projects through the use of mathematical tiles in order to create a sense of depth and a heightened sense of differentiation. Truchet tiles will be the first stop of many geometric rules and possibilities.
Truchet Tiles are defined as 'Truchet tiles are square tiles decorated with patterns that are not rotationally symmetric. When placed in a square tiling of the plane, they can form varied patterns, and the orientation of each tile can be used to visualize information associated with the tile's position within the tiling. (Browne, Cameron 2008).'
We will be exploring Truchet tiles through the aid of Grasshopper a visual programming plugin for Rhinoceros 3D, once the script is prepared we will be baking out the both animated and static geometry to experiment in Cinema4D and AfterEffects. Follow the screen grabs to follow the process!
The specific variation of Truchet Tiles we will be exploring are of the semi-circle phenotype,
For more complex use of the tiling, algorithm see Christoper Carlson's adoption of the pattern, which follows the further complexity that can be achieved through subdividing the base grid in an irregular fashion. https://christophercarlson.com/portfolio/multi-scale-truchet-patterns/
The Notre Dame renovation project is the first attempt to solidify the notion of Digital Rococo, at the aesthetic level the inquiry seeks to provide the same dramatic performance of the Rococo through the use of non-deterministic design techniques. The body of work highlights the interrelations between networks of curves whose origins, on one hand, derive from the innovation of the Tas-De-Charge, and on the other, derives from observing physics-based simulations that demonstrate the natural draping phenomena found in fabrics. The theoretical project, unlike previous projects, seeks to inspect a more controlled aesthetics where a methodical approach of introducing voxel cells to divide architectural and structural members into discrete elements provides a beacon for the erratic non-deterministic nature of cloth simulated forms to flourish.
