Machine as
Interior Producer

MIP explores digital fabrication to test the potential of spaces that self-generate. The surfaces of digital models are coded and 3d printed as hollow shells, an option early generation of printers would utilize to economize on time and material.  The machine’s algorithm generates its own tectonic logic with a zigzag pattern producing hollow, inside conditions reminiscent of a geode.

To test the potential of algorithmic spaces, eight distinct objects imagined as rooms were made to increase in depth, volume and direction. Each room manifests a unique environment with shifting material, pattern and spatial intensities. The objects can be arranged to infer imaginable scales and forms of habitation.

The project was made during an artist-in-residence at Sundaymorning@EKWC (European Ceramic Work Center).
