DEMO HOUR: SurfaceIssue: XXVII.2 March - April 2020
Freddie Taewoo Hong
Surface is a three-axis sculpting instrument controlled by an Xbox controller, exploring the ambiguous boundary between the analog and the digital. It allows anyone to intuitively apply their creativity in a real-time flow without the aid of pre-drawn digital geometry: Users can make instinctive alterations to their sculpture as the cutting progresses. Surface challenges conventional methods of digital fabrication, which rely vitally on CAD software, aiming to spark the joy of creating art in a playful manner.
