Today I finished a sculpture that I've been working on for about a week and a half. Twine wrapped around a frame and armature wire providing some out-of-frame shape. The process was long and tedious, but it was a great learning process, especially seeing how things happen in a way that is different from what you imagined. I've had this idea in my head for a while, so it was nice to get it out so I can start thinking about the interactive pieces I want to do with twine.
I also had the good fortune to stumble upon the work of Kia Utzon-Frank. She has done some very cool things with thread and string that remind me of a few ideas I've had. Seeing her work gave me a huge spark and I now have a slew of new ideas. As I was looking at her work and thinking of new ideas, I started playing around with a few of them in Processing. It is amazing how easy it is to get an idea up and running, and to play around. I could do the same thing with pencil and paper but it would take a long time and would be very tedious. Being able to draw with code helps me work through ideas quicker. A few of my sketches are below.
