Brief

Using forces as parameter and using kangaroo as main engine. Create a interactive installation on iaac rooftop area.
Mainly force using: Wind, Gravity
Parameter: Wind power, Wind direction, Springs elasticity.

Concept

The attractive part of wind is randomness and nonrepeatability.  Even given same parameter, the results are different. It change all the time. The thing I need to do is catch the impressive moment.

Computational Process

1.Create a quadrangle and stretch it. This is base geometry.
2.Anchor three corners and one diagonal on the floor.
3.Use wind and gravity deforming the base geometry.
4.Create a sphere, use the vector from original point to points on the sphere controlling the wind direction.
5.Use nod to make the edges keep straight.

Wind stimulation display

Since wind is a continuous changing process, I choose  step solver to control the process, which is easier to record the impressive moment.

Edge strength: 19   Internal strengh:6    Wind power:3.0 Direction: from top to front side
