recent news, advancements
Added additional nozzle to test out a system for multiple outputs. Using new larger compressor- successful, currently with two outputs, soon to be three. Finalizing details on materiality and process. Jig crafting soon to be. Strongly considering Turning Plaster form to create form, then vacuum-forming styrene with the form. Previously considered slump-formed Corian (R) with steel support...
Just got hold of a New Compressor to utilize. More to come shortly.
it’s been a while, other deadlines became important, but now im back on track. just bought some items soon to be used/documented on here. the list includes: -RITDYE brand dyes for dying sands [powder and liquid] -Metal 5 Gallon Paint Mixer [drill attachment] -5 Gallon Bucket & Lid ….. still needed: Screen Mesh for drying sands ….guess you can put one and two...
life and thesis are currently my main focus
Sorry for a lack of posts recently. I have been focusing on a thesis/ capstone project that is alongside of this. I think my prototype has taught me much, and now I am designing the final form. I’ll post pics as soon as progress is made. current form: this is constantly changing and evolving every day.
Comment if you would like any information! working scale prototype. seeing this in real-life does it more justice, but you’ll get the idea. next step: figuring out how to use neodymium magnets correctly to hold pieces on [partially explored] and making the Full Scale works-like, looks-like version. overall estimated size [TBD] 4’x3’x5’ maybe (?)
Working out the Kinks...
redefining form for thesis proposal, and getting parts for my other [play] project, the one with sand. I’m excited to see it as a stand-alone installation. I have a feeling it won’t be a walk in the park.
designing some more...
ive been so freakin busy with classes and design i completely forgot to post pics… yea my bad
so i decided to design/make... something odd.
a sand fountain/waterfall sort of thing. no liquid, only sand. a cascading wall of sand, able to majestically be interrupted and broken, and falls poetically. pics after its done. tl;dr Making a Working Sand fountain for design project. Never been done. any input appreciated.
Back to the routine
Back from Hong Kong.. back to classes. back to work. back to life. back to it all; i am here.
Travels to a far place indeed
so im leaving for Hong Kong in a couple days… not sure what to expect. photos are a must. i know that. im just not looking forward to arriving back, experiancing jet lag, and the next day having classes. what do you think?
will i ever use this site with the expectations it has for me? i doubt it.
