At the first week of collaborative project, I chose to work with Britney’s main concept and idea of using light to project the negative cut-out. Our idea is projecting the unconscious dream onto the wall. The design I created was abstract because I feel more comfortable with non-narrative patterns and to me, I feel like it would be more convenient when working with the software and laser cut. Our concept is to build a laser-cut 18’x 18′ in. cube and project the light from the inside of the box. So every side of the box has its own individual design which represents the dream.
This is a picture of how the design looked like before cutting.
It took 30-45 minutes to cut this 18′ x 18′ wood panel. I loved how it turned out!
I also think that the actual cut-outs are very interesting in terms of the fragments and negative space on the laser cutting bed.
