Project Recap No. 12 - Filter Light (SLA)

An additional design that takes advantage of the default support scaffolding of the Stereolithography process only here, instead of just including such scaffolding (which are usually removed when a build is completed) in the final design as tectonic supports (as was the case in the Fragrant Tower & Cocoon as well as, in a more bespoke fashion, in the Materix/ Avaterial designs), in this design the scaffolding is also used to filter light. Looking a bit like a carburetor filter the design, nevertheless, contains a bit of variety in that the density of the scaffolding matrix has been made slightly varied on different sides of the design's cylindrical torso, allowing one to subtly adjust the lighting levels by rotating the design.
