Throwing back to 2005, we were contracted by local artist Jim Jenkins for fabrication of a unique sculpture. It was for St. Charles Public Library titled “Read Them Like a Book” ( https://bit.ly/3hmbTzz ).
It’s always interesting doing special projects like this one to hone unique skills in the workplace, In this case, our Waterjet Operator and CAD department had the special task of working with Jim Jenkins to translate his artwork to files that our waterjet could accept, as well as optimizing the cut speed for a clean finish quality.
To further relate this to our day-to-day business, we couldn’t have known at that time that Jim Jenkins would later work with one of our frequent clients, Fermilab, as artist-in-residence ( https://bit.ly/3w3N3Zy ). Jim went on to create some very interesting art with their program, such as https://news.fnal.gov/2018/02/dark-matters/.
