Allison Kudla – DesCours 2007

This installation, presented for the 2007 DesCours event in New Orleans, is described in the designers words as below:

The algorithmically generated patterns drawn by this system leverage mathematical representations of both urban growth and cellular growth, thereby connecting the concept of city with the concept of organism.  This project makes concrete the idea of dynamic and fluid computer space altering the expression and formation of a living and growing biological material, via its collaboration with an engineering mechanism.
