Process entails macro-photography of optically clear models of Platonic solids posed, with varied lighting, on photographs of other of my art objects, or refracted light, or other inspirations. Using the photos, I pursue laser cutting to shape of the isolated forms, of mirrored acrylic sheet. Pigments are applied by a large UV-curing flat-bed printer. Some pieces in this series are also painted, etched, collaged or thermoformed.
