As a long fan of Ernst Haeckels work Kunstformen Der Natur – the forms of nature it was a real treat to find this Michael Hansmeyers platonic project this morning. Conceived in Processing, inspired by Ernst Haeckel, this project explores 3 dimensional subdivisions of topographic models recursively applying the subdivision process to a source form, which is restricted to one of the five platonic solids. A mouthful for you non-nerds I’m sure but the results speak for themselves.
