Kerf Clock

Kerf Clock is the result of a research conducted by Layth Mahdi that focuses on the use of machine and machine toolpaths as design tools. This research investigates an alternative approach, a two-way design loop. Model to machine, with software, machine and tool inputs. Therefore, the initial digital model, rather than operating as mere notational mean, is required to act as a guiding initial framework for design investigations, finding its completion in the fabrication stage and directly informed, by tools, toolpaths materials.
All details on the clock surface are the results of multiple overlayed tools and toolpaths projected at different axes.
