Catenary Trail This video shows the trail left by points constrained by springs, end points and gravity. The Arch moves up and to the side, leaving a beautiful trace which reminded me of the pictures of Edouard Muybridge. The video was done using Rhinoceros, Grasshopper and the free Kangaroo plugin by Daniel Piker. The exercise was prepared for a workshop with DS10 (WeWantToLearn.net) and Inter9 (Chris Pierce, Chris Matthews) at the Architectural Association.
TU Delft: PhD Research Fig.12. Resonator Triptych by Eric J. Heller. This is a sequence in increasing time after the launch of two wavepackets in a potential landscape that is outlined in the dark regions. The dark regions correspond to high potential barriers. In between these high barriers is a weak random potential.
