Some designs for the stands for the Space Rocks.
Testing a 3D print of my face using the online 3D Face Reconstruction from a Single Image tool.
Some photographs of the latest 3D prints for We Are Here.
Thinking this week about echo location, in the context of the space objects ‘talking’ to each other and sensing the distances between themselves.
Found some inspiring projects in A Touch of Code. Most notably (so far):
- Markus Kison’s Touched Echo, using sound conducted through bones. Visitors put themselves into the place of the people who shut their ears away from the noise of the explosions. While leaning on the balustrade the sound of airplanes and explosions is transmitted from the swinging balustrade through their arm directly into into the inner ear (bone conduction).
- WhiteVoid’s ‘unstuck’ augmented game.
- “Experiencing Abstract Information” by Jochen Winker and Stefan Kraiss
- And Leonel Moura’s Robotarium. The first zoo in the world for artificial life.
Drawing Machine by Fernando Orellana. Explores the notion of generative art or art that makes art on its own. The piece consists of a three tiered mobile sculpture that is driven by the vibration of a motor.
- LITERALLY SPEAKING Torsten Posselt, Martin Kim Luge – transforms tweets from twitter-users into the sound of singing birds.
- Kathrin Strumreich’s fabric machine. Two fabric loops, driven by a motor, create a division in space. Light sensors measure the opacity of the textile.
Love the design and the sounds of these Bivalvia mini synths.
And some musical inspiration for the Space Rock objects from Hatis Noit; especially the way the first track here plays with voice – using various layers, some treated and distorted, some not.
Some further sketches for the Space Rock shapes. These based on collages of the original shapes created.
Another idea for an audio player from outer space, that could be 3D printed or made interactive within VR.
First 3D model for 3D printing. A ring in the shape of a cat. Of course.
Had a bit of trouble getting the shapes right in Solidworks, so drew it in Illustrator first, then imported and extruded the various shapes.
Some photos of the 3D printed ring (pre-cleaning).
And some initial sketches:
And the final printed version:
