    Looking at Trees, Variation 2


Creation Year:



    Time-based Digital Composition; Digitally-Fabricated Sculpture, Nylon


Artist Statement:

    I go on walks and photograph curious shapes in the surrounding environment. I highlight these shapes using image-editing software. In 3D modeling software, I stack these photographs proportionally to the time at which each photograph is taken. Next, I extrude a virtual surface through the collected shapes in each photograph. Then, I collect the virtual forms and fabricate them as physical objects using additive manufacturing machines. The original photographs are at the top left. Photographs of the fabricated sculpture are on the right.

Process Information:

    Software used includes Adobe Photoshop, Autodesk Maya, Materialise Magics.
