My Master internship was the last thing I expected to make props for (it was in a physics lab…). I had to design and build an award in a few hours for a conference in Cargèse (Corsica). The stand is a resin piece (from a mould I already had), and was cast with LEDs inside. They light up clear acrylic rods, which represent light rays. The central piece is a reference to optical metasurfaces, the topic of the conference.
