Lux Cortina is a digital sculpture that simulates one of the interactive sculptures of the “Viridium project” (Leote - 2019) that has been printed in 3D, with bioplastic (PLA) and silicon parts, which focuses on the development of semi-autonomous and translucent 3D-printed sculptures.
All pieces of the “Viridis project” has a morphology like what exists in nature, emphasizing translucency, sound, light and movement.
How close would they be to Biomimicry? Or would they be Bioinspiration? This discussion is the project starting point which focuses on the development of semi-autonomous and translucent 3D-printed sculptures.
This version in Virtual Reality allows interaction using VR glasses, both with the cell phone and with the computer. It is possible to interact using the mouse or in game mode (WASD). This work has two digital versions. One with sound (game mode) and one without sound (VR mode or mouse).
