Here, I aimed to explore the concept of bio-mimicry in response to external stimuli.
In this ‘anemone’ experiment, I sought to study the free morphing of a surface. To achieve that, I placed a freeform surface into a twisted box, which in turn has proportions that vary with a slider. This morphing surface is then proliferated with cones. To have the number and size of the cones vary in relation to the morphing surface upon which they sit, the surface’s slider is also used as input data for the cones.

As slider value changes from -10 to -50, base surface swells, more spikes appear, spikes grow in size.
