|Laser Artillery in Progress|
I can't say if this vision is innate or learned because I can't remember a time when I wasn't imagining or inspired. Going back to relating these processes to a pencil, most people simply write with one, but artists can use one to create a realistic portrayal of someone's visage. The inspiration or vision just comes. I happen to see potential in a metal lathe or a CNC mill. It's torture in a way to work as a machinist and see the potential of these processes and not be able to create with them every day. It would be a lovely thing to have access to these machines full time for my own vision. So I guess the answer to the fan question is still "I just do" but hopefully this elaborates a little on the thought process involved when making art with manufacturing.
Please feel free to leave comments or ask questions about anything and everything you want to know about machining in general, art, or both.
