Design and Fabrication
I was asked to design the founders award for interACT (formerly Advocates for Informed Choice), the first organization to consider legal questions surrounding children with intersex traits, and to use the law to end harmful and disfiguring medical interventions on intersex children.
Anne laid much of the original groundwork for the organization from her home on Sonoma Mountain. Having worked closely with her on the logo and branding for the organization in 2006, I combined those original illustrations with her rustic base of operations into the concept.
The award was hand cut, sanded and stained from native Bay Laurel wood (taken surreptitiously from her wood pile) and combined with a 3D printed elevation map of Sonoma Mountain.
Special thanks to Thibault Leroy of Craftworks Mexico for his assistance with AutoCAD and MakerBot output.
