• Kaleidoscope Lamp
    Faridah Adam and I designed and constructed a kaleidoscope pattern lamp, experimenting with the Laser Cutter, CNC Router, and 3D Printer. There was one catch to this project: everything cut or printed was to be made up of the same basic shape—a triangle. After collaborative brainstorming and a long list of crazy ideas, I found a rotating light bulb online to take apart and customize. We laser cut the inner, rotating plexiglass globe and the larger outer globe, CNC cut the large base for the bulb, and 3D printed the pieces to hold everything together. After using each of the machines to our advantage to create the lamp structure, we designed 18 patterns to add to the inside of the outer globe for the light to shine through and create the kaleidoscope effect we were going for.
