In Pursuit of a Circle literally began with a smile. A smiley-face was converted to AutoCAD into a CNC routing machine outfitted with a custom inch and half paintbrush. All of the robotic movements were automated including the brush's speed, depth, and rotation. This project was made at the TechShop San Jose in conjunction with their artist in residence program and consists of eighteen individual works.
