Another neat Artengine project – a few spots around town now sport “Ludic Fields” sculptures that break the world down into twisted funhouse-mirror shards and light up at night. 🙂 I was lucky to catch the installation of the one next to the Rideau, but there’s also a set to explore at Baseline and Blair stations. The three sculptures are connected to eachother – when you activate the lights in one location the other locations all respond with their own lightshows. I like the twisty reflections!
This is an exciting thing that happened last week – I taught a sold-out class at ArtEngine how to do neat-o computer art using a language called “Processing“.
It was probably not my smoothest presentation ever, but I covered a ton of material in two hours and had to jump around a little to fit it all in. Also, despite practicing the presentation beforehand and doing a tech check in the room, my ratty old laptop just had to flake out while I was showing how easy it was to export code to share with your friends. It went smoothly otherwise.
Overall it went pretty well! I know I got a couple of people really interested. 🙂
Typical weekend, wake up, tidy the house, make lunch, laser cut
50 140 rapper necklaces for kids to put LED lights into, do some reading, drawing practice, play video games.
I’m having a really fun time volunteering at the Maker Faire. Some really crazy exhibits this year, including a live Whale Cam. Incredible!
