ACS-Media Arts, Single Line Drawings
In this class we shifted our focus from designing objects to designing paths of motion. In lieu of developing boundary representations and using standard tools to cut them into to toolpaths, we designed the tool paths themselves. To be precise, “drew” objects in three-dimensional space with a single polyline. This polyline became a tool path, and eventually an object – an object whose material and formal qualities are distinct from its abstract representation as a polyline.
