The Rosetta Stone project is a series of mappings conducted on the west coast of the island of Anholt, Denmark. These mappings included registrations of perception of physical and ephemeral boundaries over a wide range of time periods and areas along the island’s western beach. A selected mapping was used to define a machining method for translation onto a mahogany wood plate. Using a ball-end mill, points of perceived openness and enclosure became drilling targets for the CNC machining process. The position and depth of the drill targets corresponded directly to perceived clarity and proximity of boundary conditions over the area the team explored.
