The concept for my graduate project was making the impossible possible. 'They live in a mirror' was built with a strict set of rules. First, the flat, 2-D letterforms were edited in Illustrator, to fit a customized grid. In a 3-D modeling program (Rhino), the two corresponding letters were placed on two touching faces of a cube. The negative space made by the two letters was edited to create new three-dimensional forms. The forms were then deconstructed into slices. The slices were laser-cut onto 1/8 MDF and rebuilt by hand, with the pieces glued together one by one. There were multiple starting points that joined together at specific meeting points. Balance of the letterforms was reached with precise joins—otherwise the letters would fall over."
