SmartGeometry - Use the Force

At the coming SmartGeometry workshop (Copenhagen, March 28 – April 2, 2011) Daniel Piker is running the Use the Force cluster in the use of Kangaroo with live sensor data. Andy Payne will be also there to help with the Firefly side of things.

Through Kangaroo, the live physics plug-in for Generative Components and Grasshopper, this cluster will explore ways of using the simulated interaction of physical forces and real-time spatial inputs to develop novel form-finding processes. The physics engine will constantly react to the streaming data - when one element in the system changes, the entire system adjusts itself accordingly in order to find and maintain equilibrium. Treating geometric and construction constraints, material behaviour, and user interaction all within this common language of physical forces unifies and allows complex real-time interaction between them.
