String Art Patterns

String Art Patterns

String art or pin and thread art, is characterized by an arrangement of colored thread strung between points to form geometric patterns or representational designs such as a ship’s sails, sometimes with other artist material comprising the remainder of the work.

Orbi Grasshopper3d Plugin


Orbi by ar_grasshopper_collective_thn is a plug-in for Grasshopper that generates patterns parametrically with symmetry groups. Orbi allows to select a symmetry group and define any geometry as the fundamental region of a pattern.

Combinatorial Design Non-parametric computational design strategies

Combinatorial Design

This paper by Jose Sanchez outlines a framework and conceptualization of combinatorial design. Combinatorial design is a term coined to describe non-parametric design strategies that focus on the permutation and patterning of discrete units.

Computer Graphics and Geometric Ornamental Design

Geometric Ornamental Design

In this dissertation by Craig S. Kaplan, author present his research in the area of computer-generated geometric art and ornament. He focused on two projects in particular. First he developed a collection of tools and methods for producing traditional Islamic star patterns. Then he examined the tesselations of M. C. Escher.

Geometric Pies

Geometric Pies

To Lauren Ko, pies are more than just food. The Seattle-based, 31-year-old baker says she is “more an artist and designer than a baker.” The only difference is that her medium is edible. Ko is known for her colorful, geometric designs that toss out traditional baking conventions.
