Above is the sketch for the wooden platform in which the bird will be placed upon. The rotating mechanism will utilize neodymium magnets that will be attached under the wings of the bird. I printed the custom armature yesterday
I am interested in ornamental lamp. Here is a 3D model I made of an existing craft. That model gave me an inspiration to make a chochin (Japanese traditional lamp) in a shape of bird.
Here is the sketch of chochin I want to explore
Possible materials for this chochin :
For this object, I want to use data about bird population. The population data will be used to determine the length of the frames of the chochin. Each data that is sculpted into the frame will be arranged in a way to create the shape of a bird at its essence.

For processing assignment, I gathered data on urban and rural population of 20 countries with largest GDP. The data was acquired from The World Bank’s databank.
The countries were arranged (in row-major-order) in terms of their GDP. The light green bar represents the rural population and the darker bar represents the urban population.
This is modeled after Anthony Dunne and Fiona Raby’s Digitarian Car
The process started by applying BlendSrf command to two surfaces
The roof of the car was made by applying RailRevolve command into a rounded rectangle rail
The first one is the Panton chair from the tutorial
The second one is an ashtray made by using the loft and boolean difference command
