Tone Depth

This is a technique developed here at MIA that enables the embedding (carving) of an image into the surface of a variety of materials.  Using a CNC router grooves of varying depth are cut into a surfasce, such that the shadows created inside the grooves compose the image.  This technique allows the creation of  custom, unique, cost-effective, machine-made works of art ideal for the Interior Design, Architecture, and Hospitality industry.

Pixel Luminance EXtrapolation (PLEX)

These works are the result of a process that has been in development for close to 2 years and has been used to produce stunning works on materials ranging from wood to plastic and acrylic to aluminum. Each material adds its own character and qualities to the end piece making it suitable for a specific setting, be it for display in a gallery or hanging from the side of a building. Each piece consists of 12,000 to 18,000 thousand holes depending on the size and resolution. On average there are 8 different diameter size holes arranged in a way that they create the tonal qualities of the overall image/subject matter.

Techtonic Interlocking Modular System (TIMS)

Techtonic Interlocking Modular System, aka TIMS, are products designed without using any hardware, require no tools during assembly, and are able to be flat packed for shipping. TIMS allows for simple and quick assembly and dismantling which is convenient for temporary or multi-purpose spaces. TIMS also allows for effiecient material usage thereby creating less waste which is also great for our environment. These designs range from an item as utilitarian as a desk to children’s building blocks to decorative 3D dinosaurs!
