my design work in and out of architecture

Extruded Hex Pic


This Grasshopper definition is a continuation of some image tessellation experiments I have been doing in Processing extruded to 3 dimensions. The definition abstracts an image into hexagonal clusters made composed of 3 quadrilateral whose common point is then extruded to a height relative to the image brightness at that point. A mouthful, I know, but the results are rather striking. Feel free to download and experiment with your own images, and please email me and share what you do with it. I would love to see what others can do with this as well.
