Hubcap Creatures

p " Hubcap creatures are made entirely from re-cycled materials. All the hubcaps are found, usually on the side of the road, and therefore bear the scars of their previous lives in the form of scratches and abrasions. I believe these marks add texture and history to the creatures they decorate, and so choose not to fill, overpaint or alter them in any way." p o p

Fractal Table

o o o Fractal table is a result of studies into fractal growth patterns that can be found in nature and which can be described with mathematical algorithms. Per definition a fractal is a fragmented geometric shape that can be split into parts, each of which is (at least approximately) a reduced-size copy of the whole, a property called self-similarity. The fascination for us as designers lies in the objects’ grown and organic nature but also in its structured and mathematical quality. Both in terms of size and complexity Fractal Table pushes the manufacturing process to its limits. Fractal Table is produced by Materialise as a single piece SLA in epoxy resin. Its dimensions in cm are: L98 x W61 x H42. Treelike stems grow into smaller branches until they get very dense towards the top to form a quasi-surface. The structure starts quite unorganized at the bottom and gets progressively organized till it ends in a regular grid, thus a progression from an approximate fractal to a fractal with exact self similarity. To achieve this result different CAD software, both for nurbs modeling and polygon modeling, was used. o o

Jordan Domont

p p p ' Jordan Domont hails from the corn-fringed and cul-desac’d suburbs of Indiana. He grew up tall and earned a BFA from the University of Oregon in Eugene, where he studied figurative painting. It was there that he fell skull over-sneakers for portraiture. After college, he moved to Portland, where he now lives and paints. To infuse depth and luminosity into his work, Jordan employs a palette of punchy hues. Experimenting, he discovered that when inks layer heavily onto Mylar, it creates a rich, almost melted effect. Pigments become slightly volatile, even mercurial, and their behavior enlivens the entire process. Jordan likes to explore how different amalgams of color work together, because it sure trumps sitting back and watching paint dry. ' p p
