Two xerox sheets of diagrams of the camera hex arrangements with an attached handwritten note written to Phil Condit, a fabrication employee, written and signed by Roger de Montebello, December 11, 1984. Condit was working on creating a punch to be used to punch the film. The early versions of de Montebello’s 3D imaging technology utilized film transparencies that were themselves molded into a hexagonal pattern. Here, de Montebello is providing notes to Condit on how the hexes should be arranged.
