Digital Fabrication for Education

My project this week has two artistic inspirations: a butterfly print by Andy Warhol (see image displayed on the computer screen below) and traditional batik printing used in Southeast Asia.  In batik printing, a wax resistance technique is used to create multiple images of the same shape across a piece of cloth.

I tried to use the laser cutter to similarly duplicate three images of butterflies in a row, and show the butterfly in a gradual progression of flight. My design progressed from a flat sketch to a three dimensional laser cut design.

Arranging the pieces together...

The finished product is below.
