Spatial Sketch

Spatial Sketch is a software application for creating 3D sketches in physical space and transforming them into real world objects as a series of laser cut slices. The idea is to bridge between physical movement and physical form, exploring the creative possibilities of digital fabrication. 

The initial iteration shown here demonstrates the design and creation of a lamp shade using gestural movement and its fabrication using a series of radial slices cut from cardboard and acrylic.
