I want to bring wood applications into the nonconventional: fashion, accessory, etc. With new implementations of wood being explored, I also found the idea of replacing or enhancing typical wood constructions with plastics. All of this includes a heavy emphasis on the role of digital design and fabrication.
With the goal established, the product and outcome needed to be determined. With a friend graduating soon, I decided that this experimentation served as the perfect opportunity for a gift. I decided that a shuttle (used in weaving) was the perfect idea. It is a small sized object that could be created in a variety of ways using fabrication machines and digital design.
Next step: What is a shuttle?
