Karl Blossfeldt’s early twentieth-century work focused on exploring vegetal form through magnified photography. These plant forms then became source material for the designers of the early art nouveau movement. The photographs were reintroduced as source material for formal investigations in the 3-D computational environment of Rhinoceros and Grasshopper. The scripts that resulted were explorations into how vegetal form can be pushed by the tools available to propose new and novel forms. The work and research done for the project was formalized into a published paper at the 2011 International Symposium on Algorithmic Design for Architecture and Urban Design (ALGODE 2011).
