Artist Statement:


    The model of an object in the computer’s memory can be used to shape a real and tangible model from wood, plastic, or metal through numerically-controlled (N/C) machining techniques. Prototype molds for this remote control device were made just as readily They were realized in a fraction of the time that would have been required to make them by conventional means. It was thus practical to make many prototypes for more thorough testing in the time normally required to make only one. Overall development time for the product was thus shortened dramatically.
