After a long hiatus, I've decided to embark on a yearlong project! As a full time engineer, I need something that will fit into my schedule and challenge my analytical and aesthetic senses. That something is Multiplexicon, a project where I will create 100 digital models of the course of a year. That's roughly two per week. The rules for this project are...
The purpose for these rules is to improve my coding skills, further explore a topic that I have touched upon in my past work and thinking, and to prepare me for a practice that utilizes 3D printing once I have the means of doing so. I'm excited by the possibilities of exploring what I'm calling the Language of Multiples, or the emergence of forms from the repetition of other forms. It's from this concept that this project derives its title, a fusion of the words multiplex and lexicon.
I'm not very experienced in 3D modeling or coding, much loss trying to do one with the other. But that's where the fun comes in! I hope it will be a fun process to see and I hope the results continue to improve on one another. I've been doing some practice before officially embarking upon this, so I already have 4 renders ready to view! They are on this page, or the Multiplexicon page in the new Projects section.
For the tech-curious, I will be using Blender to perform the modelling, and the coding language I will be working with is Python.
Let's get to work!
