[STRANGE FUTURE] Numerically Controlled Posters

Matt W. Moore, the brain behind MWM Graphics–a design and illustration studio based in Portland, Maine–just released his numerically controlled poster series; a collaboration between engineer Aaron Panone, Paper Fortress Films, and MWM Graphics. Aaron Panone, who engineered the jig explains, "Vector graphics are converted into a tool path and then a machine language which controls a 3-axis CNC Machine retrofitted with a special fixture that holds a marker [a sharpie] and mimics hand pressure during the act of drawing. Thirty-three mechanical drawings in three designs were produced using this process." Each drawing comes with one of the Sharpies used.
