Hi guys, this is Victor, a current nus year 3 ID student.
To me using mathmatical logic as a design tool is very fresh and very interesting. Thus I selected this module on Grasshopper.
For my first perosonal avatar, I’ve done it by converting a profile picture into a grid of 100*100 circles. Then I extrude the circles into cylinders. Each cylinder has a length that depends on the brightness on that point. Thus I get a landscape of extrusions.
Since this is a picture taken on a beach, I changed the colour of all the cylinders into golden yellow and then adjust the location where I set the camera. As such it looks as if the sunlight is shining on the cylinders from the sky.
