After letting the lesson about inspiration sink in and taking in account the advise of the teacher about the time consuming process, ideas started flowing again. I decided to quit on the leaves and the spiral for now and get back to my first choice of inspiration. There are many aspects I like about the nannolith but especially the gap between the faces and the different layers that build up the faces speak to me.
When approaching the design of the nannolith I kept the process in my head to much. That is… well, difficult to get your head around. I decided to just make some basic building ‘blocks and see what interesting ways I could find to connect them together. While doing so I discovered more mathematical ‘patterns’ in the general structure. Mainly angles between the different faces. More on that later..
