Morphing: The Tool

February 7 2015

My grad school friend Joseph Choma published a book called Morph: A Guide to Mathematical Transformations for Architects and Designers. From the intro: “This visually striking guidebook clearly and systematically lays out the basic foundation for using these mathematical transformations as design tools.”

To accompany this book, Joe needed a website where his readers can go and try the equations he introduced. I made this simple tool using Processing, where users can define x, y, and z using u and v and interact with the generated shape. They may also export and save their work.

At some point a Chrome update broke the WebGL rendering for wireframes. I believe it’s fixed now.

Collaborated with Joseph Choma.
