Collage Box

Second-year MFA Fine Arts student Oxana Kovalchuk and VFL manager Oya Kosebay are working on the layout of vector shapes in preparation for cutting with the VFL's ShopBot CNC router. The shapes are the basis for tool paths that the cutting head of the router will follow to cut pieces for Oxana's ongoing series of light boxes containing collaged photographs of family, memories, and household objects. The CNC process can be time consuming to perfect, so Oxana has done a number of collage boxes to perfect the process.
