This abstract sculpture was inspired by the movement of starling murmurations. I created it as part of the 3D Fundamentals course at Northeastern University.


For inspiration, I watched the video below on repeat and sketched the abstract forms of the flying birds. I then carved my favorite sketch into floral foam, after which I used a 3D scanner to digitize the sculpture, and sliced it into 52 pieces for the laser cutter using SketchUp.
