As I’ve gotten obsessed with all things laser, I’ve been seeing a lot of laser-made creations that look fundamentally similar–geometric objects made up of obvious planes with hard, sharp edges, usually of solid-color flat stock or plywood. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with them (I’m planning to make a lot of that kind of thing for specific purposes when my GF comes in). However, I get a real thrill when I see work that goes so far beyond that aesthetic that the object either doesn’t intuitively appear laser made, or it’s so complex and fascinating that it transcends the process/medium. I’d love to see anything that strikes you the same way.
Here are a few of my favorites:
Ara Peterson’s “Tube” sculpture
HenningMade’s “Regina” cabinet
Elvira 't Hart’s clothing
Wim Delvoy’s Gothic-industrial sculptures (this one is “Concrete Mixer”)
What gets you excited?
