Guilloché, a decorative engraving technique dating to the 17th century, uses machines to produce extremely intricate and precise interwoven surface patterns. Also called engine turning, guilloché has been used in metalwork, printed currency and official documents as a means of thwarting counterfeiters; that is, as marks of authenticity and value. Presented here are three selections from a series of cuffs created using a custom parametric computer script— a virtual guilloché engine— that produces these patterns in three dimensions. The cuffs are digitally manufactured using a laser sintering process in nylon: a light, strong and flexible material that produces no waste. Because the cuff geometry is generated parametrically and its production is digitized, there is no limit to the number of possible iterations.

Their Statement: The 2013 Amnesty International report says that this year in Afghanistan thousands of people have endured indiscriminate attacks from the armed opposition’s group. More then 2700 civil have been killed, 4805 have been injured and many people have been tortured. Violence against women is pervasive. 459.200 people are displaced and they live without access to the water, medical assistance and education. Out of the country refugees are 2,7 million. The afghan’s situation in Belgium during the last year became worst: to hundreds of them the right for asylum has been denied. After that, some of them found protection in a church in the centre of Brussels, where they live in very difficult conditions; some of others live on the street and some have been deported. Everybody are scared to be sent back in Afghanistan, which is a country where they cannot live anymore. As the Declaration of human rights says, everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person and the right to seek and to enjoy in other countries asylum from persecution. They are asking to have the chance to live in peace, to work and give to their children a better future. They want justice!
