Map of Creative Process, 2012. 18 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ Elm wood & plexiglas.
This work is a visual map of my creative process. I restricted my data collection to a single source to illustrate my exploration of the system of organization. After scanning the surface of a wooden board, I disected the scanned wood grain into a series of seven patterns. Each pattern was translated into a CAD file for the laser cutter, which I then used to incise Plexiglas sheets with the patterns. The initial wooden board was used to create a frame with dado cuts for each sheet, which can be slotted in and out to be reorganized in any desired order.
