This project is about storage and collecting. The program creates an irregular, oblique grid.

Each cell can be occupied by different shapes; some of these, when extruded, can be stacked by recursion. The result of each iteration of the program is more or less occupied spaces, with higher or lower stacks. In all, the program has 66 different color palettes, the grid can be subdivided in three different ways and stacking occurs with four main shapes, some of which can be superimposed on others.

The process

My previous projects were based on the implementation of rather abstract systems of organisation of compositions, experiments where the use of paper and pen was used to solve a concrete problem that the code posed to me.
My use of the plotter pushed me to equip myself and rethink my relationship to drawing and paradoxically it led me to re-draw by hand.
It was a question of testing this pen, that ink, to better understand the tool before letting it wear out for four hours on the arm of my robot.
In a way, it was also a question of training my hand, by dint of creating perspectives, the drawing itself became a subject of research without my realising it.
The starting point of this project was to reproduce with the help of mathematics what my hand used to draw almost automatically. To decompose these drawings into modules to be easily reusable and adaptable. Based on my paper drawings I have established rules for creating each face, the most fundamental of which is that each face must be moved perpendicular to the axis of the row. This is to create an empirical perspective and not something absolute and straight.
