Keyboard Frequency Sculpture By Mike Kneupfel.
He said, “I’ve been thinking about and exploring the idea of using 3d rapid prototyping techniques to create sculptural data visualizations.”
He Used This Chart From Wikipedia For The Frequency Of Each Letter.
“I didn’t really have any great ideas for a particular data set and was having trouble explaining my idea to people. I settled on mapping the frequency of each letter in the alphabet onto a key on the keyboard”.
Here Are The Results:
His First Attempt At A Data Driven 3d Sculpture.
“I wound up scaling the keys a little bit too much in the vertical direction. The weight of the tall keys caused the towers to tilt at an angle”.
“I plan on showing this prototype to a few people that will hopefully give me more ideas for new data sets to look at. I want to try and use the CNC for future data driven sculptures. I also want to try and include color into the sculpture somehow”.
