Coordinate Disruption​


This research used a simple still life, a cup on a table.  The still life was drawn multiple ways, using charcoal, pencil, sculpture, and a computer.  To recreated the still life in the computer space, within a CAD program, the mass was represented with points in a three dimensional space.  

Then, the coordinate system of the three dimensional space was disrupted.  Using a Python script, the individual coordinates of each point were converted from cartesian coordinate system (an [X,Y,Z] space) to a polar coordinate system (a [U,V,W] space).  The new [W] coordinate was found by taking the distance from a fixed plane and adding it to the value of the [Z] coordinate. Using this program, the environment of the still life within the computer can be changed.  In this example, it was changed to a spherical environment.
