Stage 2

AJ-Engraved-Signature
After the drawing stage is the construction and this would not have been possible without the assistance of the School of Computing and Engineering, University of Huddersfield.

How does a sketch become reality … with great mathematical minds, for not only does the frame need to be aesthetically pleasing to the eye but it also needs to withstand the elements and be safely secure within the landscape.

Take a look at the photograph of the piece of metal with my name inscribed on it, you would think it would be easy enough to trace my signature but there is no programme for a machine to do this. My signature has infact been turned into a mathematical equation, every curve and straight line has been calculated by a human being and then programmed in to the machine to cut into the metal.

This makes this piece of metal more precious than ever when you understand the effort that has been required to produce the signature it contains.
