Weir, Ian (2005) Heathprint. [Visual Artwork]
The work was derived from terrestrial laser scan data of a bio-diverse landscape on the SE coast of Western Australia. The digital three dimensional scan data has been abstracted into two dimensional horizontal sections or slices. This abstraction converts the complex data into spatial information which is meaningful in the context of the act of architectural and landscape architectural design. The primary intention behind the production of the work was to expand understanding on the means of representing and then designing for sites in 'kwongan' landscapes which are constituted by highly biodiverse - and thus difficult to measure - heath vegetation. From Heathprint the author generated contour intervals of the landform upon which an associate (Daniela Simon architect) designed a work of architecture, which subsequently was awarded a commendation for residential architecture in the WA Chapter Australia Institute of Architects awards 2007.
