Mapping

Mapping provided a fun way to take something ordinary and put in into an entirely different context.  Cutting the maps with the CNC produces a texture that can often be mistaken for abstract randomness.

Paris Map

"Please do something with the back of this cabinet!"  Those were the orders, and what was done is a map of Paris.  CAD data gave me street centre-lines, so it was only a matter of getting the CNC to follow those CAD lines.  Finished in white melamine paint.

Windsor/Detroit

The Windsor-Detroit Map gives a neat visualization of the differing planning stratagies of the two cities.
