Shaping Light investigates how surface slit and fold patterns can transform sheet materials into adjustable sun-shading screens using a laser cutter. You'll see how the core aspects of digital/physical design processes (digital sketching, lighting simulation, digital fabrication) unite to transform a 2D sheet into a compelling 3D light modulator.
