fresnel light

by Dirk Vander Kooij

The fresnel divides and scatters light through the hills and valleys of low-resolution 3D printing. As if ripples in water, the concentric design sees glittering bands pulsate outwards from a central, steel droplet.  

Hot ribbons of recycled plastic build the lens slowly, layer by layer.  Sourced from rooftop windows, safety glasses, and industrial chocolate moulds, this unlikely source material gifts durability and glasslike transparency to the fresnel.

Recycled plastic, much like wood, carries indicators of its history. Based on the previous life of our plastic, the transparent material can appear cool or warm. The specific tint is not under our control, though is part of the joy in granting material a second life.
