Negative Modeling: This is a term I give to show how I must set up the first part of this concept which is the reverse of what you normally think of as the the basis for form under which lies the structural means to allow for form. In this example I must reverse this concept to achieve the end result- start with form upon which will sit the structural device. In this way, I have termed this negative modeling, as what you see now, will only serve as to dictate loosely the final form and structure of this arrangement of objects. It is only possible I think with 3D modeling as the tools allow for a freedom that is different from actual physical modeling. Construction using todays technology: The structure will be proposed to be made from light weight steel alloy extruded in sections to achieve the linkages of connections that form the Periphege. Micro-organisms In actuality the Periphege could be seen as a larger skin upon which serves as host to its inhabitants in some very organic suggestive manner of its form. Inside of the structure: The inside of the structure is more like a temple to the idea that everything is used and reused and nothing wasted. Energy is more valuable as any precious metal or gem. Periphege is an instrument to test the balance of intelligence and resourcefulness. Medium: Digital modeling, digital computer graphics rendering and image post-processing. Project: Periphege Design Concept: The reversal of positive and negative space as suggested by the peripheral edge and that which it inscribes is the celebration of that which for these builders and inhabitants find to be most important. The balance of technology and the ecosystem. This is celebrated by restriction of inhabitation to the smallest of space that which normally forms structure for the volume that would enclose one. One finds a new space in the edges of the volume. Volume becomes a different aspect of outward focus as set apart by that which inscribes it. Finally, Periphege is not a completely perfect structure as there will be inherent areas where the signs of abnormalities persist as a result of the balancing of the equation of technology and ecosystem.
