I am inspired by the ability to explore iterative, organic form in 3d printed objects. There is math behind the beauty of creatures like the seastars, and I would be thrilled to write the code, translate it into a physical object, and hold that math in my hands.

I’ve recently discovered OpenSCAD, 3d modeling software with a programming language using iterative transformation to generate complex shapes for 3D printing.

This particular seastar, modeled from seashells, was discovered in the storage area of my favorite pet shop, Jabberwock Reptiles in Winchester, MA.
