Detailed photos & design concept behind The Oracle 2.0, TerraLiving's parametric moss wall sculpture

The Oracle 2.0 - a desktop parametric moss wall sculpture by TerraLiving


• • • Design concept & philosophy • • •


Parametric art is an emerging form of computational design, defined as the use of variables and algorithmic rules to generate form.


Here at TerraLiving, parametric design enables us to create mathematical objects like waveforms, spheres, or quadratic curves and change their properties such as scale to influence shadow overcast created by different light sources.


As compared to most plants, mosses generally lack complex structures. Since mosses can be separated into smaller individual units or what we call "moss pixels", parametric sculpture allows us to create shapes and form for moss, like never before.


For our "Oracle 2.0" parametric moss wall sculpture, a number of computer-generated shapes come together in pleasing, seamless formations.


The various components such as moss and 3D printed parametric planes fit together harmoniously and produce stunning visual effects that flow from one shape to another. The outcome is often visually soothing and satisfying to look at from every viewing angle.
