Object to drawing to object to drawing to object again

Projections: From Object to Drawing to Object to Drawing to Object Again

Left Column: Two objects were placed on a reflective surface and drawn from two points of view. on a desk using graphite on newsprint.
Right Column: Objects were painted to resemble the drawing with similar texture and tones using black and white acrylic paint.
Left Column: Sections were taped on the objects and initially measured using a graphite rub against the flat painted surface. This was then measured with a ruler to create the initial 'flat' surface of the sections. The still life was then photographed from the back and front perpendicular to the section cut. These were then used and measured to create the two drawn sections. They were then transferred to Rhino and intersected in their proper locations.
Right Column: Five more photos were taken of the still life, including back, front, left, right and top. These were all measured at the exact same distance from the edge of the board. They were then intersected in Rhino and points were found in space. They were then randomly connected in an open loop. This random connection created the basis for the following steps in the project.
Taking the open loop only, a new object was created by rotating the line on itself. This create the cylindrical form on the right. Projecting a viewpoint through the object caused a new, reflected object to form on the other side. This object was then constructed.
