For my Art Interacting With the Environment project students are tasked with creating a piece that responds to the urban environment. As a class, we travel to varies locations in Cleveland, where students have the opportunity to sketch out different ideas. We then meet at the think[box] at Case Western Reserve University, where students are given instruction on how to design their idea into a vector file, which is then sent to a laser cutter to be cut. After the wood has been cut, the student has the option to laser etch the surface or paint it, to better integrate the piece into its chosen environment. We then meet at the original urban environment, where we have a critique on each students work.
