P E R SPECTIVE

As it starts to create further aggregatory actions, it is creating a direct tranfer of intensity between the outside and the inside, which is driven by its performance nature

As the system starts integration, it is providing the node with intensity performance driven actions.

When the hardshell presses, it designates less light to the interior softshell. As the tenticle members move away from the softbody, they are looking for maximum sunlight exposure for energy transfer.

Aggregation System

E L EVATION As the temperature changes on the outside, the inside dilates or contracts to change the surface area of the inside, making more performance driven spaces.

S E C T I O N

After the system is aggregated, it connects within each other, creating an interiority which can expand and contract depending on its performace conditions on the outside.

The two systems meet. The softbody on the inside designating mass and the harbody on the outside designated for creating apertures, enclosing the softbody and displaying intensity levels from the events on the inside.
