The Babel Light explores the relationship between light scattering, tool path tessellations, and variable material deposition in ceramic 3D printing. Material deposition is controlled by a variable extrusion domain that changes relative to a given location on the prototype. When extrusion increases, more material is deposited. If this occurs across a void in the geometry, unsupported clay will sag, resulting in more significant plastic deformation. Varying degrees of plastic deformation result in changing levels of brightness from top to bottom of the piece. The final Babel Light prototype is conceived of as a standing lamp, with steel supports that taper upwards, mimicking the shape of the screen.
