Focus on Transformation
The studio for conservation takes care of the preservation of cultural assets. Since most of the materials are based on natural resources, they are subject to the constant process of change and transience.
In order to transfer these living structures into a visual design, I dealt with the “Perlin Noise” algorithm. It offers the possibility to calculate some visual noise.
Parametric design as a method
A large number of structures can be achieved by varying several parameters in the script. Those structures refer to the appearance of the various materials with which the conservator deals.
If each positional value is divided by a scaling factor, the “landscape” is divided into small or expanded sections depending on that factor.
The arrangement of the individual elements becomes more distributed/cloudy or more ordered, depending on how large the changing step within the “Noise” algorithm is in each iteration.
