While the image above set the project in motion and provided a the inspiration for the central sculptural moments in FRACTURE, the concept for the rest of the room emerged from a simple design motive; create a projection installation based on triangular facets. Many other projection works utilize triangles, but failed somehow in embracing the inherent flatness of video media.
The idea of a fractured surface offered a visual design language that could be used to explore three-dimensional compositions of shards of video, and provide infill between the focal points.
NOTIONS of a NEURAL NETWORK
AI tools weren't around when FRACTURE was originally designed in 2020. Recently however, tools like StableDiffusion have become part of my ideation and design process since then. I have been revisiting older projects with these tools to to provide some high fidelity visual examples of what I had imagined FRACTURE might eventually look like.
