Undersexualized Recursion – F0001

Posted on Feb 2, 2017

Undersexualized Recursion (F0001) is a continuation of a series of computationally-designed spaces and networks.  It explores how architectures can emergently hold spaces by communicating with parts of itself, experiment with solutions, and breed possible organisms.  Much of the design of this organism uses code-authored-code, which self-edits its programming.   This work does not fetishize the object; in fact it does everything it can to obscure, limit, and confuse the viewer.  To map the space, the viewer must invest time and effort to decipher the geography of the space and the evolution of the organism.  This is an ongoing project, with continuing efforts to prolifically explore the formal-, computational-, architectural-, and spatial-search spaces.

The F-Series explored how thicknesses of networks can have cusp and variable ratios.  It tried to resolve horizontality and platform configurations while communicating with branches and levels that are either above and below the point of nodal growth.  Without straining the malleability of the geometry, it tried to reconnect to adjacent branches in a way that would promote linear and platform occupancy.
