Patterned Landscapes

Cyprus has a long history of decorative patterns of noteworthy geometric complexity.  Starting from discovering such a 2D pattern, participants of ARCH-262, Advanced Computer Aided Design, [ARC] University of Nicosia, developed and proposed their own 3-dimesnional pattern and populated it to create a tessellated tile, using the knowledge acquired during the course. The tile was […]

AA VS Innsbruck – Robotic Freeform Manipulation

AA VS Innsbruck marks the beginning of a research initiative around robotic prototyping methodologies that would allow rapid and cost-efficient fabrication of non-regular geometrical topologies. Driving from observations of natural environment and the Tyrolean extreme winter conditions that formulate ephemeral geometrical figures of snow or ice, the aim is to research on ways to reproduce […]

BLOCKS

BLOCKS is a transdisciplinary endeavour investigating the aesthetic conditions that arise from the intersection of digital mediation and artistic discourse. The exhibition brings together selected cypriot and international artists of divergent artistic domains, to present a collection of brand new works that will explore the “geography” of robotic fabrication technologies and contemporary art. As alluded […]
