Parametric design functions by defining relationships between variables and parameters.  As an introduction to the powers of these tools, you will begin to develop a graphic that’s resolution will be described through points you define.  As you develop the graphic, you will discover the tool has the capacity to iterate instantaneously, allowing you to freely massage the graphic or increase/decrease its resolution in target areas.


Using the provided grasshopper definition, for this journal you will develop a digital self-portrait. Using Photoshop, you will adjust color settings and image scaling.  Once inserted into the grasshopper definition you will define points of high and low resolution within the image to construct your graphic, massaging the coordinates as necessary.
