Moire Simulation

I was interested in the use of the moire effect for my Linbury Prize design submission (An Adventure by Vinay Patel).

In addition to using both 1-to-1 and scale-model pieces to test out the visual effect, I wanted to try previsualising it digitally as well.

When the production was being realised, we needed to decide on the exact model of mesh to procure. I repeated the process.

I was able to factor in the material thickness and aperture size specific to each mesh option we had shortlisted.

This was integral as we realised the effect would be mostly lost with different grid types and also heavily relied on specific sightlines.
