Orange and Blue Sliceform – Richard Sweeny
Richard Sweeny makes exquisite geometric scultpures from paper, metal and synthetic materials. Check out his Flickr set of paper sculptures that are immaculately composed as if they were architectural structures. The play of light give the impression that they could equally have been made of code! His website has some interesting Sliceforms that utilise rapid prototyping to reproduce models from 3D rendering software :
‘Sliceforms comprise several interlocking sheets intersecting at right angles to create forms that suggest three dimensionality’.
