Tactile Photography

September 16th, 2005 | Filed under: Fabrication Tech, Photography | No Comments »

The always interesting James Patten in collaboration with Mariliana Arvelo have created this series of tactile photographic prints as part of a project about the deafblind community in Boston, called “Senses”. The works are produced through a CNC laser etching process that removes the top portion of the wood. The darker the image is a any particular point, the more wood is removed by the laser at that point. The result is a photographic relief that can be touched as well as seen. [gallery]
