Sample Student Work


Guy Gardner teaches an Introduction to Robotic Fabrication course every year. Headmesh explores robotic fabrication through the hot wire cutting of ready-made foam heads and utilizes a language of repetition and hybridity to evoke phenomenological responses.


Waveform explores robotic fabrication through ideas surrounding masonry and hot wire foam cutting. Waveform also explores complex and customizable interlocking foam bricks which can be arranged into a wall or a variety of other forms - creating design flexibility. From Guy Gardner's Robotic Fabrication course.
