Photokeratitis: The Assembly Continues

Once the main framework of CNC'ed contoured "ribs" were set in place, the [R]ed[U]x Lab team proceeded to add the laser cut elements that blurred the edges. The idea behind the laser cut elements was to find a way to generate a surface that both took on shadows but cast them as well as diffused the edges of the contoured pieces. As the design developed the laser cut elements were cut using light paper so that as air moved across the display, the shadows created by the ribs as well as the shadows produced by the installation would have another layer of movement.
