Dotted One-Liners
2009
Glass

Jorgensen’s work investigates how new computer interfaces can facilitate more personal and expressive aesthetics in artefacts created using digital tools.

To create the Dotted One-Liners Jorgensen uses a digitising arm to record the act of drawing a loop freehand in the air, to describe the rim of a bowl. The data is recorded as a series of spatial points. This data is then used to set a series of upright steel rods using laser-cut templates. These glass bowls are formed by slumping sheet glass over the rods, using the innate properties of molten glass to create the forms.
