Rex from Houston’s TX/RX Labs wrote in with a fun project:
Leftist art doesn’t sit well in a corporate law firm. So when one of our members decided to spruce up his office with something handmade, subversive and beautiful, he faced a dilemma: Sell out or get fired.
Luckily, compromise carried the day: Using the Lab’s CNC plasma torch, the member cut plate steel silhouettes of five notable – and revolutionary – attorneys: Cicero, Abraham Lincoln, Mohandas Gandhi, Franz Kafka and Nelson Mandela.
The final product, when finished, will consist of a diffused light box to display the likeness of one of the lawyers, as well as a storage rack (pictured below) to hold the four pieces not on display. The box will be designed so that the pieces can be swapped out depending on the viewer’s particular inspirational needs.
