Axial, Proximal and Distal movement

Geometric properties of an isovist provide a measure of the perceived spatiality from a defined ‘point of view’. As such they provide the basis for explorative movement, based on realtime numeric derivation of directional goals. Below we demonstrate three different movement strategies established in this manner.


(above) Movement towards the perceived axial centroid of an unexplored space (axial movement).


(above) Movement towards the nearest point on a perceived occluded edge of an unexplored space (proximal movement).


(above) Movement towards the furthest point on a perceived occluded edge of an unexplored space (distal movement).
