Tempest of a Teacup

Robert Lazzarini. Teacup. 2003

For this project, New York–based artist Robert Lazzarini‘s first experiment in “complex nonlinear distortion,” the artist composited attributes of different cups and saucers to arrive at an archetypal object. He first drew the cup and saucer using three-dimensional modeling software, and then he laser-scanned a well-proportioned spoon and fed the scan directly into his computer. He next applied multiple sine wave patterns along different axes through these virtual objects. You got all that?
