Michael Neumann
Maps of Cambridge and Boston
Laser Cutter

Michael Neumann used the Laser Cutter to make maps of Cambridge and Boston. He created two very different styles by using different materials and techniques. For the Cambridge map, he rastered the map on anodized aluminum. For the Boston map, he used three different colored, thin sheets of acrylic to represent the land, water, and roads. He laser cut each sheet then layered them to create the map. He pulled the data to generate the various maps from google.
