Developable surface sculpture

Developable Surface

During ART 3995 - Digital Tools for Sculpture, we were tasked with creating a sculpture that utilized the concept of "developable surfaces," or a surface that can be flattened out without any distortion. This sculpture was generated using Rhino and Grasshopper, then printing the flattened surfaces out and cutting out the pattern from cork.
