Surface Ornamentation as By-product of Digital Fabrication

The project consists of series of experiments directed towards devising methodology on utilizing 3D printer as generative constituent of design process. The thesis is that manipulation of manufacturing parameters could lead to various architectural facets being informed by the process of making. A method to manipulate G-code, an interface between digital parametric design and digital manufacturing, was developed in order to instigate emergence of controlled yet indeterminate textural patterning directly out of fabrication process. The objective of the project is derived from a concept of surface ornamentation as indirect material trace of the process of formation. This line of thought touches upon several themes. Among them is an idea of ornament being a behavior, immanent to an object, made manifest through the process of construction. (Moussavi, 2008). That behavior is referred to as internal structuring of object’s materiality when exposed to external forming forces. (Spuybroek, 2016). The process of formation is therefore informed by relationship between material logic and machine logic, whereas surface variation is an expression of that interaction.
