Laser cutters are powerful and versatile tools that can introduce significant untapped potential to artists. However, currently available learning materials for working with these machines are not designed with artists’ needs or interests in mind. To address this gap, Alda developed the Joy of Laser Cutting, a project based on her own experience as an artist looking to engage with these machines. This project uses recipes, food and visual language from the world of cookery as tools to reframe online DIY tutorials and appeal to the interests and needs of artists while encouraging creative engagement with the material. This show presents the work that was developed for the Joy of Laser Cutting as well as the journey that led Alda to develop it in the first place.
