MATSYS Design’s Seacraft Eggs is a piece that came out of a course at the Advanced Architecture Studio at the California College of Arts in 2013. The purpose of this design was to find the relationship between craft and design and use something technical to make it poetic. The artist were inspired by Malcolm McCullough’s 1996 book Abstracting Craft, which covers these topics.

What inspired me about this piece was the fact that every egg is made up of a different algorithm. Although I can not directly identify them, nor could I locate them online, I can see a range of simple polygons and complex lines a used. Although I like the variety of designs, I do think there could have been many many more.  Seacraft egg
