Tonsilitis: A process in progress

I am currently developing a system by which one can digitally model a form in virtual space; in order to render the form as a flat patten that one could construct inflatable forms.

So far I have been using form•Z, Maya, and Adobe Illustrator. To pattern forms such as the tonsil project seen here. Since going through this process once I believe I need to write a specific program to pattern the kinds of inflatables I make.

As seen currently installed at the river east art center 455 E. Illinois ave. Chicago IL

Nurb model from Maya.

form•Z reduced planes and flattening.
