Sculpture and Lagoa Multiphysics 1.0

Time at my workbench is more precious than time spent at the computer. I like reality.
Younger artists won't need to make that distinction as the computer becomes their workbench.

Instead of working with their hands and real materials, they'll program the object they want to make and then send the digital file to a company like Additive Workshop to be fabricated, milled or printed in 3D.

Lagoa is a customizable particle physics framework that allows artist control of high friction granular frameworks, imcompressable fluids...

Did you understand any of that?
Just watch this video and you'll understand.
(Warning!  Annoying music accompanies video.)

Hurray for fractals!
None of that would have been possible without'em.
(O.K. So, I could use a dose of reality.)
