Student maker in residence constructs a topographical map of the Ansel Adams Wilderness, on the universal 3D laser. The initial image was found online; a basic topographical map of the area. By manipulating the grayscale, along with a few other settings, the student was able to command the laser to produce clear variations between the peaks and valleys of the mountainous region. This particular project took about 8.5 hours in total, and was the student maker in residence’s first attempt at a photo transfer onto wood via laser. She looks forward to improving like-projects in the future.
