Geode is a video-mapped sculpture, developed from an analysis of improvisational geometry in three-dimensional space. The project interrogates the aesthetic potential of emotive geometry by utilizing non-orthogonal shapes and mathematical models inspired on the geometry of crystals. Geode takes neo-concrete art to a new dimension by integrating digital geometry in response to audio synthesis. In this way, we accomplish a crystal-like shape that glows like a mineral geode. The surface variations are the result of real-time sound synthesis. We visualize soundscapes by transforming analog signals into digital data in real-time. The sculpture’s metamorphosis is experienced visually by sound-driven generative geometries. Geode is a collaborative effort to fuse public sculpture, soundscape, and visual projection into one immersive experience.
