Text and images were imported from Photoshop into Partworks for editing in preparation to be cut on the shopbot . The images had to adjusted slightly to ensure that all parts of the stencil would remain attached to the main body. The font used in the text of the graffiti was chosen with this in mind too.
Using 8' x 4' sheets of 9mm builders Plywood the Shopbot carved the stencil taking three passes for each letter.
When the stencils were cut they were mounted by hand against the wall next to a busy arterial route in Belfast city centre. Using a power-hose to remove the staining on the wall from years of accumulated traffic resulted in a eco friendly socially conscious message.
