This series of sculptures present an unusual combination of traditional woodworking with 3D printing, LED illumination, and parametric design. Each piece Is a unique angular wooden “tangle” that forms a self-intersection geometry cantilevered off of the wall. They are made from thin wooden beams which appear to be solid wood but magically illuminate from within. The light glows through the wood grain and casts geometric shadows as it moves in animated patterns. The beams are joined together with 3D printed forms that produce a deliberate contrast between natural wood and machined plastic. Each piece is generated from the same rules and constraints, but is unique due to parametric generation.
