Manufacturing Diffusion – Anthony Policastro

Sometimes professors can push you in the wrong direction, where you are forced to explode into your own design explorations to keep your sanity.  This submission is a self investigation during the past semester at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute by Anthony Policastro, in just one those instances, which sparked this amazing design.  His project took on creating something as simple as a light through an intense investigation into digital fabrication and material studies.  Check it out after the jump!
