Boris the Spider
(Various Manifestations)

Modeling Jon Hunwick
Rendering Gavin Miller

Jon Hunwick's model of Boris inspired me to produce a variety of forms including a poem and a computer manufactured model. The spider was the first test case of a new set of algorithms for machining arbitrary shapes which I developed as part of my Ph.D. It is now used as the company logo of Delcam Systems Ltd. which has a turntable movie of the sculptural Boris.
