  • Historical Significance: A function for fragmentation was used to break the figure into pieces. It has the capability to make clusters of fragments, control their range of displacement and to rotate them. The center section is the same as the figures on the sides but with a greater displacement. I made a painting of just stripes. My painting was scanned and then I mapped it onto the 3d models. The center section was shifted and rotated many times before I thought it worked in the space.
