Turning artificial intelligence designs into sculpture
Patterns created by a design software program were fabricated into an eight foot-tall sculpture by Quinn McCormack in a third-year environmental design studio led by Gabriel Esquivel, associate professor of architecture.
In the piece, “Autonomous Façade,” McCormack explored turning a design created by artificial intelligence into a piece influenced by graffiti and the dazzling look of neon signage in Tokyo.
Elements of the piece were cut at the Automated Fabrication & Design Lab at the RELLIS campus, assembled in an off-campus garage and painted on a porch at McCormack’s apartment.
“Autonomous Façade” is part of “Fresh Vision II,” an exhibit of student work that opens at the Wright Gallery May 23, 2022.
