Resin cast into mahogany using liquid crystal pattern

My good friend Oliver Coles has used my liquid crystal photography to create this coffee table surface. Using the image as a template with a CNC milling machine, he etched the pattern into mahogany and filled it with resin. The structure is back-lit with 140 addressable LEDs for a colourful light up effect. The first image is a photograph of the original liquid crystal; for more liquid crystal images like this, take a look at the liquid crystal photography page here! 

Many thanks to Oli for using my photography.  Take a moment to check out his website and other projects!
