    I think it is a good change for your project.

    Good background research… Good research plan, too. now start making some forms!

    How to Sculpt an Elephant: A Foolproof Method
    Step one: Obtain a very large block of marble.
    Step two: Remove everything that does not look like an elephant.

    I really like your concept. Great job with your demo! I feel like you’ll have enough time to do what you want to do, but I think your generative program itself is pretty awesome too! Can’t wait to see your brainteaser forms! It would be interesting to see if you could somehow connect realtime data to the development of your 3D images (make it more user-interactive!).

    I agree, I am excited to start seeing what kind of forms you’ll be producing
