Art through code by Aaron Meyers.
Aaron Meyers made these elaborate works of art with Processing and laser engraving. The intricate patterns were computer generated from equations and instructions Meyers wrote into the code. The patterns were then converted into a suitable format for a laser cutting machine, which produced these amazing examples of laser engraving.
Laser cutting often gets most of the attention with laser engraving taking a back seat or used to supplement the the cutting. It’s refreshing to see someone focus so completely on the capabilities of computer controlled engraving. Be sure to check out Aaron Meyer’s Flickr stream and site.
There are some more images of his wonderful work after the jump.
For those that aren’t familiar with Processing, it’s an open source programming language developed specifically for creative applications. It is yet another wonderful idea to come out of MIT’s Media Lab.
