The task was simple, take an existing poster of our choice and extrude the piece with any means necessary. I scoured the internet for quite some time before I came upon AM Bauhaus. It instantly struck me, I cant tell you exactly what drew me in so much but for some reason I needed to make this a reality.
So began my process of making this poster come to life. With 3 dimensional extrusion of anything I knew that it had to be viewable from all sides. At first I thought it may be cool to have the piece be free standing with giant rods extending through the holes of the poster. This idea wasnt the strongest so I let it slide until I eventually thought why not make this a one time exhibition? With the help of our friendly automated laser cutter I carved out the aspects of the poster I deemed most pertinent to its readability. What i came up with is more of an exploration in 3-D space than I could have imagined. While I took many final shots, the one I have below gives the best effect in my opinion. There is a nice sense of depth and background to the shot, it gave the Bauhaus poster the attention and breadth it needed.
I hope you enjoy!
