Pipelines

Art installation for the Australian Design Centre

Australian Design Centre commissioned Lukasz Karluk to create an interactive installation for their 50th anniversary and launch of their new space on William St. Part mural, part interactive projection – Pipelines – is a continuation of Lukasz’s fascination with interfacing and augmenting the urban canvas.

Generative design was used to grow Pipelines around 3 large A-frames, following a number of growth rules and circumventing obstacles (see video below). Each A-frame contains a letter of the ADC acronym which creates a central chamber inside which the content of the Pipelines spill into and combine to create iconic images of the ADC disciplines.

Pipelines generative growth.

6 icons were designed by EyeJack that underline the cross-disciplinary nature of design practices at the ADC. Once a chamber fills up completely, the particles combine and solidify to reveal the full icon design.
