TO MOVE IS HUMAN - GRADUATE THESIS


WHY AM I SHOWING YOU THIS PROJECT? 

I'm fascinated by movement and how we perceive movement - movement creates memories and experiences around changing perspectives.


What is it about: My thesis was about how I could use a parametric tool (computer coding in the Rhino environment) to derive memorable experiences based on how we perceive the world around us.  I used the parametric tool as test. It worked out since I need large numbers of subtle changes to my design to create the memorable changes to movement.    

The Key Learning: in 2007, when the merits of parametric tools were still being debated to the extent of their value within design, my thesis became less about ideas of movement, perception, and temporality and more about how technology has a place in design. I still carry this debate with me today.
