algorithmic modeling for Rhino
Originally inspired by Nervous's Seed Lamp
The form is derived from a physics based mesh growth, while also being constrained to original surface, creating buckling.
I experimented with many different texture effects. In the end I decided i liked the idea of the outer surface being eroded smooth. With the articulate texture protected within folds.
