Installation with nuts

9 06 2010

Recently i made a small installation for the ‘Lange Nacht der Wissenschaften’ (lets call it as the long night of the sciences), at Collegium Hungaricum Berlin.

This year the symbol was the nut, or a half nut.  That form is really similar as the organic structure of the human brain.

For the nuts i designed a neuron like system. It was more then 300 pieces painted to white, so the lines working well on the nuts surface.

For the neuron surface i used a very simple spline structure, programmed and mapped in Quartz Composer.

For the brain picture, i used the Dicom plugin for quartz composer with a one of the sample file.

More infos about that night you can read here.
