Winter '15 and Spring '16 I experimented with a digital process of reducing images to a few color vectors and exporting those outlines to a laser cutter to make stencils. The process could be used on almost any image and could be used to make stencils, printing plates, etc. It was a little sloppy with the found stencil materials and spray paint I could find, but could be refined for a number of applications.
