The idea originated in 1998, when I wasconfronted with a CAD/CAM system while teaching in Canberra, Australia at the ANU.

I disliked the system, as it was designed for architects, rather than for ceramics-artists. The possibilities were restricted to square shapes and -maybe- some curves, but it was not at all like anything that would allow you to -play-, as I love to do...

The limitations of the software (very much like the limitations of material such as porcelain in the "real world") got me however to try to use it's strength: square bits and pieces. 
Together with one of my students, we developed this copy/change sizes/rotate, copy/change sizes/rotate function that computers can do better than any human I know.

 

 

 

After returning home in Amsterdam, I forgot about it, only to re-discover it somewhere on my harddrive in 2003...
