R2R REEL to REAL

Studio Title: ESTm TestaVertical Studio FALL 2012
Instructor: Peter Testa with Brandon Kruysman, Jonathan Proto
AT: Peter Vikar

Architectural Form, Robotics and Cinematic Technique
R2R continues a series of Testa/Estm studios pioneering a new design paradigm at the convergence of Computation, Computational Materials, and Robotics. This new paradigm draws together digital abstraction and material agency within a Maya based real-time synchronous robotic shaping and simulation environment.The R2R studio is structured in two interrelated parts that combine innovative form making, and cinematic (post-animation) techniques. To support this architectural research program the studio will work on the conceptual design and prototyping of new design interfaces and representation techniques tied to specific geometries, material forms, and non-linear robotic design and fabrication workflows.

FIN.0

Students: Nicholas Barger, Evan Emery, Rangel Karaivanov, Andrew Kragness
Studio Title: TestaESTm Vertical Fall 2012 ‘R2R Reel to Real’
Instructor: Peter Testa with Brandon Kruysman, Jonathan Proto
AT: Peter Vikar

FIN.0 is a design platform comprised of repertoires of robotic motion, material logics, tool customization and real-time cinematic techniques networked into a dynamic interface that allows for the design and evaluation of dynamic surfaces and the motion of form.

Suspended Depositions

Students: Brian Harms, Haejun Jung, Vince Huang, Yuying Chen
Studio Title: SUSPENDED DEPOSITIONS ESTm Fall 2012
Instructor: Peter Testa with Brandon Kruysman, Jonathan Proto
AT: Peter Vikar

This project aims to blur the line between processes of design and fabrication in the context of rapid prototyping by increasing the fluidity of the fabrication process through coordinated material and robotic processes. The project exploits feedback loops that allow the process to be used as a live generative form-finding tool as well as a method for reification of designed objects.

Phantom Geometry Thesis

Students: Liz von Hasseln, Kyle von Hasseln
Studio Title: Graduate Thesis Summer 2012
Instructor: Peter Testa & Devyn Weiser


This work is centered on the development of a system for generating material volume from streaming information. The system uses UV light from a modified DLP projector to continuously and selectively cure photo initiated resin within a shallow vat system we developed for the project. The cured part is simultaneously and continually pulled away from the vat, allowing un-cured resin to flood in beneath it to be subsequently cured.

Phantom Geometry

Students: Liz von Hasseln, Kyle von Hasseln
Studio Title: Testa ESTm Vertical Spring 2012 ‘Real-Time’
Instructor: Peter Testa
Research Fellows: Brandon Kruysman, Jonathan Proto, AT: Curime Batliner

Our project is about the visualization of the body.

In the New Representation in Scientific Practice Bruno Latour states:
“The information for the perception of an object is not its image. The information to specify something does not have to resemble it…Scientific imagery is never mimetic. If it was, there would be no gain of information between one step and the next.”
