Artist and architect Peter Jellitsch created this series of pen and ink drawings entitled STB based on algorithms that predict how air will move through highrise buildings.

STB means Streambody, this series is based on a motion algorithm that is used in architectural practice to simulate wind directions and the force of air that arrives at highrise buildings. I have experimented with this program, and the outcome was solid bubbles which I have then redrawn with the directions that they had. The degree denotation that my title has (for example: STB/S02/90°) is explaining the turn of the wind-force hitting the object.

STB is an amazing ink drawing series created by Peter Jellitsch, Vienna. I really like their looks, remind me of some info-graphics.Jellitsch tells us interesting information about this series;

Peter Jellitsch is a a 29 year old phd student from Vienna where he did a master in architecture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. Jellitsch is practicing somewhere between art, architecture and science.
“Generally I am trying to translate digital generated stuff into analog drawings. On one hand to see which differences appear between the digital outcome and the analog one, and on the other hand, i am interested in the repetitive movements that appear when i am reproducing from digital data. My work is always repititve in terms of sequences of one project. always a series of drawings, because most of my experiments are based on digital simulations.”
