As I've begun learning to make things with metal, I've been captivated by many of the unintentional visual artifacts left behind. Techniques like welding, plasma cutting, hammering, and oxy-acetylene torching are generally used to modify a 3D form, but I wanted to make a piece that specifically highlights the artifacts they leave behind.
This video is a stop motion of 447 frames captured over about 15 minutes of torching a 24"x24" piece of sheet steel. Even though I've put a lot of hours in using this technique, this is actually the first time I've been able to watch the process without darkening effect of protective eye wear and the pressure of operating the torch.
