Voronoi shell made with sand

A student from Tsinghua University in Beijing, China sent us those images from a workshop Yusuke conducted with AADRL’s tutor Robert Stewart-Smith and recent AA graduates Xin Wang and Soomeen Hahm last summer. The Topic of the workshop was to explore the distributional logic of dry sand via multiple outlets using only gravity to generate three-dimensional patterns. Its generative logic was simulated simultaneously with Rhino/Grass Hopper for parallel analogue/digital experiments. The top layer of the sand was then hardened with sprayed resin. 96 panels were designed and fabricated for the Beijing Biennale 2010.
