Upon taking Visible Certainty a second time I thought it might help illustrate design development by posting my more recent projects. While the topic of these lineages is different than the first time around the subject matter remains similar.
This process began by gathering precipitation data for a site located adjacent to the Galien River in New Buffalo, MI.
The data was then assessed and categorized placing two dimensional rings of appropriate diameter to represent each months total precipitation data.
In conjunction with the organization of the raw data, an armature was manipulated based on the topography of the site in both plan and elevation.
Each of the two dimensional circles is then placed along the spline in time sequence. Once assembled a simple loft is projected around the two dimensional circles creating a three dimensional form based on the inserted data and context of the site.
