Raster files take a while to complete on the laser cutter, so Beth experimented with getting the desired results of a raster using a vector file. By finding the right balance of settings in a vector file and altering the focus of the laser, she found that it is possible to achieve raster-like finishes at lightning speeds. In the video of her print being created on a plain weave cotton fabric below, it looks as though laser energy is painting the fabric.
Beth calls the print that she designed 'Primal Tech' because of the collision it has taken between simple repetitive shapes and new technology that is anything but primitive.
She then used one of the finished fabric prints as the pocket fabric in a short that she made.
