algorithmic modeling for Rhino
The cocoon is an artistic interpretation of the deepening relationship between humans and the animals of the forest.
The structure, whether hanging in the trees or lying on the ground, gets inflated and deflated:
Hanging and inflated, it is in its most aggressive position:
It provides confidence for the human inhabitant by blowing up the space, letting more light in and releasing pheromones through its nozzles - an aggressive gesture similar to the outside appearance of the cocoon.
By changing the amount of air pressed in the space, the structure gets smaller, darker and less aggressive to the outside.
Finally the air inflation is turned off completely, the air supply ends - this forces the inhabitant to leave the structure and to cope with the real environment he is in.
