ROBOTIC LIGHTPAINTING & 3D CASESTUDY - 01.2017
3D AND LIGHTPAINTING - CROSSMEDIAL RESEARCH
This casestudy is about the usage of Lightpainting for the evaluation of new fashion, illustrations and parametric designed architecture.
When Johannes Braumann from Robots in Architecture asked me for a new collaboration together with the Fashion and Technology students of the UfG Linz University - FAT), the process brought me back to where I stopped in 2016 for another award-submission. 8 months later I think its time to share my project as new input creates new output.
The first casestudy came from students illustrations - created under the umbrella of Univ.Prof.Mag.art.Ute Ploier and Univ.Prof.Dr. Christiane Luible-Bär - which were adapted to 3D motionpaths of the KUKA robot, from there on I evolved ideas in 3D based on taking stills from the former projects to generate 3D graphics from trails formed by lightpainting. This evolution involves new ideas for fashion (print cut & textures aswell as the prototype for architectural parametric design studies.
EXCERPTS FROM THE CASESTUDY
The interactive robotic AV-installation SONIC DEGREES OF FREEDOM was exhibited @Ars Electronica Festival 2016. We used the KUKA IWAA robot as the centerpiece of this installation. The robots seven axis movements produce varying current-consumption. The different tensions are transferred to an analogue…
