Topographic Frequency

INSPIRED BY THE SERIES “EXTRUDING BODIES” BY THE ITALIAN ARTIST, LORIS CECCHINI, THESE RELIEFS DEPICT CONTROLLED SOUND FREQUENCIES IN A 3-DIMENSIONAL MEDIUM. THE SOUND FREQUENCY PATTERNS WERE OBTAINED USING A TONOSCOPE SOFTWARE THAT CREATES AN OUTPUT OF CHLADNI FIGURES BASED ON THE INPUT FREQUENCY VALUES, SURFACE DENSITY, TENSION, BOUNDARY SHAPE, AND OCTAVE. THE 2-DIMENSIONAL CHLADNI FIGURES WERE THEN MADE 3-DIMENSIONAL IN GRASSHOPPER USING IMAGE MAPPING TOOLS, CNC MILLED FOR THE NEGATIVE FORMWORK, AND THEN CAST WITH PLASTER.
