This Program extracts data from provided text files and abstracts it in order to create 3D geometry in an open Space. The data in the txt files are listed in 8 lines of text where each line represents that individual’s age, height and weight. These variables are compared to a predetermined average point and these variations control the vertexes in the abstract form.
The final output is a completely abstract and simple piece of geometry in 3D space, that represents the size and shape of a human being over their life time so far. The idea of the project is to outline the different shapes and sizes the human body can take, and to abstract this into a lifeless form which contains an enormous amount of data, but is very simple and beautiful.
The second part of the program produced 2D versions of the 3D geometry, which when arranged correctly, made up a net that was printed and constructed physically to create the models in the physical world. This connection to the real world emphasized how the human data could create an abstract geometrical shape that was an individual and different piece from any other due to the fact that every person is different. The ability for the human to hold and interact with this geometry emphasized the link between the two, while still conveying the abstraction concept quite clearly.
Volume simply creates an abstract, one-of-a-kind physical structure, based purely on the human form and the individual data every person possesses.
