Check out this stunning laser-cut wood DVD package! Paths of Light DVD Box is a collaboration between Francisco Elias and Nelson Fernades, two Portuguese creatives. The DVD box in a interactive wood box.
"The wooden box contains a short animation film entirely designed by Zina Caramelo in 2013. This animation film was developed over a period of 9 months through a long creation/destruction process. The medium used was a single wooden plank on which he reinvented/unrolled all his visual and poetic discourse, using multiple techniques. This life cycle resulted in a box, whose construction involved two distinct stages: a mechanical one and a manual one. The first stage - the mechanical one - involved cutting and laser printing operations (1 hour and 30 minutes) to produce 6 different pieces. The second and last stage - the manual one - involved the exploration of collage techniques using those 6 pieces, a drying period (2 days) and a sandpaper finishing (30 minutes) to create the final version. Each box is unique."
