Blue Piece

An artificial heart resides in the minimum simplistic body.

The figure, which lives inside the body, redefine the between different organs consisting of the whole. sometimes the figure gets cut off by the body, some ceeds the body and sometimes it slightly deform th body’s inflation, negotiation and retreat is cont

Visually, it spills a fluidity onto the odd geometry. the edge, makes it seamless while maintaining the te non-hierarchical relationship between part and whol level of autonomy is maintained in the artificial hear its own system of skin and space. From the externa ture on the figure underlines the geometry of the b produced in three dimensions. The shadow casted on waving with apertures around the courtyard which i the project.

Programmatically, the shaped part is organized to what it need to do. Armatures either get longer re outer space to bring light and others are stretched two spaces, providing visual connection.

In-Forming Shanshui with City form = container = the how of matter material = contained = the what of form design = giving form to matter (or in-forming)

Matter traditionally stands in opposition to form, i.e. something that has shape. The material world concealstrue, ideal, pure, and timeless forms (eidos, or idea) by giving form a filling. Matter was seen as a temporary filling for eternal forms.The eternal forms always come from nature. City is human’s intervention to nature. Human intervention is rather temporary compared to the existence of earth.

My project is about the possibility of the reconstruct nature with artificial element. In another word, in-forming Shanshui with City texture which is presented in an abstract way through coding.The project is inspired by the nostalgia of rusticity. As the entire mode of human existence changes over long historical periods, so too does their mode of perception. The era of industrialization and urbanization changed and developed a different perception of rusticity. The existences of forms from nature in artifact reflects the states of perceptions. This project is one the temporary state of perception about the eternal form, nature in the era of coding.
