Impossible Shape

Working on an open brief from Canon to produce a shape that would be impossible to produce without 3D printing, I produced the idea for a 3D representation of an image - the consumer inputs their chosen date to remember (a wedding, birthday, anniversary) and the algorithm changes three factors about the shape based on the day, month and year. This is then 3D printed, polished, electroformed and plated to produce a free-standing desk sized sculpture to remind the onlooker of their special occasion.
