PLYSCAPES

Added on by Christina Cho.

I really love the idea of taking a commonly-found material and thinking of ways to exploit its properties, transforming it into something unrecognizable from its original state. Plyscapes was an exploration in how different milled geometries expose laminated layers of meranti plywood to produce various patterns. We experimented with 2 main approaches: 1) a globally-undulating surface onto which a tesselation is projected & extruded to various depths and 2) a less-articulated, contoured surface produced by various sine and cosine curves swept along each other.
