This installation was designed as an assignment for physical graffiti class at Parsons. The idea was to create an object using laser-cutting technology and to implement the piece in the streets.
The design is a dodecahedron (12 regular pentagon sides) with every side cut by laser. Inside their is a light source where, as a result, the laser cut design projects its shadows on the wall/floor or any surface around it. The material used was acrylic because it's an easy material to work with, specially to laser cut.
Implementation of the dodecahedron at Union Square.
Experimenting the dodecahedron indoors. The shadows of the laser cut design on the walls are very peaceful and beautiful to observe.
Process: from paper prototype to real size structure.
You can download here the paper prototype file and the laser cut file to create your own.
