Material Formation in Design

Author(s)

Project Description

A series of panel prototypes are produced from manipulations of image scans of an initial basswood hand carved panel.  Beginning with a hand-carved panel allowed for a freedom in design that is achieved through simple intuitive moves that are applied directly on the material.  By scanning to “digitize” the initial model, the new genre of formed panels registers new data from traces of the material properties of the basswood which begin to add a new layer of complexity and texture to the digital forms.
