Gradient

Info

Gradient investigates the use of laser cutting tools to create material effects, induced by simple, repetitive etching patterns. A series of rectangular strips is engraved into aluminium plates with varying power. Instead of producing the expected geometric figure, the process yields a continuous organic texture, more likely to evoke natural processes than industrial automation.
