Clacker- LookingOutwards 03

Nervous System is a generative design studio that works at the intersection of science, art, and technology. I am inspired by their “Generative Jigsaw Puzzles” collection. They partnered with artists to make visually engaging prints for the top of the puzzle. Then, using a custom software that simulates crustal growth, totally unique pieces are laser cut into the puzzle. The result is a one of a kind work of art that is both a unique art object, work of generative art and usable puzzle. I am very interested in making works that serve a multitude of purposes. I am especially inspired by how this project is a simple and elegant project that is digitally computed and results in a physical object that can be enjoyed by both someone who appreciates the computation that went into it and someone who does not.
