Here is a fiber relief piece I created using Rhino and the laser cutter. I began with a cube and other shapes that I removed from the original cube using boolean difference. Then I created serial slices using the contour command.

Savor the subtleties

These geometric and organic sculptures explore form, landscape and architectural references. These are reactions consisting simple happenings and events. I wanted to savor the subtleties in the brush strokes created in the plastic wrap and the liquid plastic (acrylic) as it wraps around this structured stark white volume armature.

Acrylic Skins

There is a pleasure in peeling up an acrylic palette, to pull up the thin skins of plastic. Until this I hated acrylic with a passion.

Crystal Fabrication Process

So this project came together really quickly, I only had a week to design, laser cut and fabricate this installation. I just want to thank Professor Kelley McClung for the opportunity and Professor Andrew F. Scott for all of his support and the knowledge about digital fabrication that he has passed on to me.
I had a tremendous amount of help with the digital elements from Devin Thompson, another talented  Sculptor. When it came to actually fabricating the works I had a ton of help from my friends Audrey Dakin, Ty Derousseau, Devin Thompson, Daniella Zeman and Anne Mason! Also the Gulfstream Lab was awesome for accommodating this project. And the SCAD Physical Resources department was incredible in their dedication to this event and their willingness to help with anything and everything!

Now here for the process...

The digital segment for this project required four programs including Maya, Pepakura, Illustrator and Rhino.

I am so grateful for all of the support and help from my professors Kelley McClung and Andrew F. Scott as well as my friends Devin Thompson, Ty Derousseau, Rebecca Lemker, Daniella Zeman, Anne Mason and Audrey Dakin.

Here are the results!
