Ripples Dish is like a 3D photo. It emulates a normally brief and ephemeral moment of ripples on water and like a photograph, freezes that moment in time. It captures the complexity of the radiating rings and the interference pattern that the two converging ripples create. I wanted to use the technology to make an object that while simple and familiar, is impossible to create by conventional means. The aesthetic of the object does not proclaim or celebrate its digital origins and yet this object is truly a product of technology.
