Shit or Bust - Urban Farming Community05
I want to create an exploratory piece of installation (both in its design process and in the way it is used). I want to construct a piece that can be erected outdoors. It must be engaging and curious to the public. The piece must be affordable to produce and limit the amount of wastage in its manufacture. The method of design and manufacture may be ‘hi-tech’ if require, but the construction of the final piece must be lo-tech and able to be put together by hand.
The Location of which will be the Calder Valley, the piece must then be weather-proof and hard-wearing and conform to appropriate regulations. The ‘thing’ must also be able to get reach the site and this would either be done on the back of a standard trailer, inside a small transit van or large car boot.
Uses self-organising processes to create an architectural form.
structure is created using simple rules; the outcome is an apparent complexity. The materials used also conform to the inexpensive and the ‘sustainable’ criteria.
An algorithmically 'grown' structure based on L-Systems theory.
