SummaryRamen Tower 1 remixes a scan of a pack of dried ramen noodles by artist Tom Burtonwood. A scan of a common food item is stretched and distorted to form a complex and organic structure hovering over the surrounding landscape. Reminiscent of a large termite tower, the form suggests a modern green building design. Or, perhaps the structure is a windowless building whose carefully shaped surfaces ensure electronic privacy, preventing eavesdropping on the inhabitants of a security organization. The base of Ramen Tower 1 is a simple rectangular solid to ease the transition for those approaching the alien structure. Maintaining the proportions of a traditional structure, large scale 3D printing allows the outer skin of the tower to take on strange new shapes.
