"The critical parameter will be to develop the potential beyond finite forms of explicit and parametric modeling towards non-linear algorithmic processes. We will seek novel patterns of organizatio, structure, and articulation as architectural expressions within the emergent properties of feedback loops and rule based systems." - Course Syllabus
The project "Flourishing Borders" started with a simple recursive logic of something growing by adding agent vectors outside the boundary of an existing enclosed border line. It was later developed into a mesh growing mechanism. The exploration process of python scripting led to a discovery of the possibilities to not only "growing", but also retracting back and forth on the boundary. A spring system was introduced as a means of dynamic growth to generate a more vivid-looking and flexible form.
