Light Path Study 1 (2016)

Light Path Study 1 was my first exploration into 3D printed displays. The idea was to create non-traditional displays that could  surface shapes, and curves with 3D printing. After analyzing and re-implementing existing research projects on 3D print optics1), I succeeded in 3D printing objects that have potentials to function as alternative displays. The project has been evolved into Light Path Study 2 and Glow Box.

The project was printed on industrial 3D printers such as Stratasys J750 and 3D Systems ProJet 7000 HD SLA at NYU’s LaGuardia Studio.
