Found this site while looking into DEM to CNC work. Interesting. I like the look of the gypsum as a medium bit I don't like the exagerated releif or the stepped contours. Not sure if that's intentional or a limitation in the artists work method.

Since it is just a simple plaster cast I am sure they didn't need to have the terrain stepped. I am not sure how it is "4th dimensional" [sic] though...

"Abstract Expressionist sculpted painting" :huh:

I didn't get this either, it looks to be wholly representational. Not abstract, not expressionism and not a painting.
