This January, two new interns joined Slip Rabbit. Daria Micovic is a senior in math and Frida Saucedo is a senior in art at the UW. We are also excited about our collaboration with Professor Billey of UW Math on coding and printing rule based patterns, such as Cellular Automata (CA). We are exploring ways similar to the CA that generate infinite variations of pattern in both 2D and 3D. There are lots of ways to go with this process... In the studio, we had already developed two reliable methods for the application of patterns to forms and created weaving textures with these. This time, we would like to put an emphasis on creating the patterning rules by algorithmic means and learning more about why some of these create order while others unravel in chaos.
Below are some of the patterns.
