Introduction: 'Encounter' Lamp

About: New Media Artist / INS: @w.e.i.d.i

The idea of the lamp is inspired by the recent pandemic situation. Each individual is located in their own chamber by keeping social distancing. I keep recalling the feeling of encounter other individuals, we are different but have many things in common.

I came up with this idea of a lamp that celebrates the encounter - that will always enlighten us in different ways.

By reading the tutorials covered by Jennifer, I found that I am interested in using algorithms to generate the shape - Jennifer introduces "Numerical Representations of Surfaces" and "Trigonometric Surface Functions". I also quite interested in how to do a creased pattern by using Rhino and Grasshopper. I found some tutorials online teaching about the creased pattern. Combining both, I created two objects, one with the shape generated by perlin noise, while the other one with the shape generated by bezier. I used graph mapper instead of pure python code to design the shape. I found it is much easier for me because I am not good at math :)..

Step 1: Merge Two Algorithmic Objects

I merge those two objects and get the above results. It looks weird in a good way.

I like the result, and I received the filament yesterday so I am running out of time to print it. But I think this object is completely printable. I will print this week and update my post..

Step 2: A Broken 3d Print

even I use support, it is different to separate the model with the support structure easily, so I broke some parts of the model ....

    Excellent concept and great representation! I am wondering will the light source has one or two?

    I am thinking have two light sources in side with different lighting tone

    I really like the 'mingling' of the 2 shapes. Curious about how it will print. Have you tried printing a version of it?

    'Weird in a good way' ^0^ Great inspiration! A crisis posing an opportunity :)

    Nice interpretation, Jungah!

    Weidi, this is a very cool form. I hope to see a photo of the print after your filament arrives!

    Question 1 year ago

    Hi Weidi, awesome design! How did you combine the two objects? The geometries look complex and I'm wondering if a solid union boolean operation was sufficient? Also how did you create the 3d solid beyond a surface for each of the two shapes?

    I like how organic this shape looks. I assume it would take a long time to print but could be interesting to see with a bulb inside.
