The third iteration in a series of sculptures for the artist Alyson Shotz, a warped tubular form is created by interlocking pieces of laser-cut dichroic acrylic. In the development of this series, Shotz consulted with Situ Studio to create a custom Grasshopper script and fabrication method that could be applied to a variety of geometries. Beginning with a NURBS surface, the GH definition controls a series of different cutting planes that are used to generate notched and numbered parts for laser-cutting. Adding to their complexity, the artist’s choice of material creates multiple, unpredictable senses of form. Read more about Shotz’s work in dichroic acrylic here.
