BEATEN INTO SUBMISSION

Battered and worn I stagger to the finish line :)

It's been great, but gruelling towards the end and the inevitable feelings of anti-climax.  "I could have done so much more ..."   So what have I done ?  Like Columbus' third voyage, my third pumpkin journey builds upon the experience of the first two.


  • 2011  Carve a Pumpkin  (Halloween Head)
  • 2012  Assemble a Witch  (Halloween Head)
  • 2013  Populate a Parallel World  (Halloween inside your Head ?)




  • 2011   invert the product (Pumpkin=Doric Column)
  • 2012  invert the process  (Carve on Vegetable=Assemble Many)
  • 2013  invert the viewpoint (up = down)


The purposes are many.  

  • Push the boundaries of what I can model in Revit (both Vanilla and Point World)
  • Blur the distinction between BIM and ART
  • Interact with a community of all-round good guys
  • Ponder the meaning of the universe
I chose to explore more directly the analogy between Parametrics and DNA, Dialogue boxes as clusters of Hox Genes telling an embryo to "grow a leg here", or "make an eye now"



Last year I was inspired by Arcimboldo, sixteenth century court painter to the Habsburgs of Vienna & Prague.  This year I chose MC Escher, a long time hero of mine :  player of mind games, consummate craftsman, explorer of the porous boundary between "paper space" and "model space".

Come into my world.  Zoom in, float around, lose yourself.

I am uploading Revit files to Autodesk 360.  You can log in and view them.  Use Firefox or Chrome (Maybe IE11?) to use the interactive view and orbit around my imaginary worlds.
