MA work

I set myself a challenge: to investigate ways of transforming a 2D drawing into a 3D object.


With the process I have developed it is possible to manipulate surfaces to form substantial 3D volumes without the need for a mould, while retaining the delicate simplicity of a 2D illustration. Metallic ink is printed onto a sheet to act as a key; the sheet is then folded into its final 3D form. Metal is ‘grown’ on the object’s surface, creating a ridged structure. The sheet material can then be removed leaving the finished self-supporting form.
