AGENT TOPOGRAPHIES masterclass by robert stuart-smith assistant daniel kรถhler institute for urban design univ.-prof. peter trummer university of innsbruck | 2011

FLOAT FUSION exploring the possibilities of two sets of variables and starting positions. one, we call the linear sketch and was centered on two sets of straight points clashing into each other. in the second sketch, the cloud, a orthogonal set of points grew into a fan, that expanded spiraling. both were interesting approaches, but were lacking the complexity we sought so we decided to merge both sketches. we were interested into the interacterns that would emerge from it.
