Build a Light | Objects and Interaction | Undergraduate Design Minor

Create a lamp from plywood and/or polypropylene using the laser cutter. Your digitally fabricated lampshade is a vehicle for exploring geometry, fabrication, and computational design. With this project you will be transforming 2D materials into 3D structures. The lampshade should be an aggregation of lasercut units that come together to surround a light source. While your lampshade will be constructed from wood and plastic, the real substance of the design is light itself. How does your lamp give form to light?
