From Sketch to Thing

May 11th, 2022

I love how close the final pieces are to the original napkin sketches Gabe BC made. I designed and built both of these pieces a few years back, but just came across the sketches today.

Holy Roller

April 27th, 2022

I designed and fabricated the enclosure for Gabe Barcia-Colombo’s piece, Holy Roller. Multiple screens, a computer, and a slot machine handle have been tucked inside.

“The “Holy Roller” is a slot machine that uses machine learning to generate new pieces of life advice upon every pull of the handle. The piece is fed 500,000 quotes from throughout history and generates a new completely unique one for each person who pulls the lever on the machine.”

Mechanism Prototype

I breadboarded a potential mechanism for a project I plan on calling “Not a Horse”. The feel of it is quite nice. A half turn of the knob gives me nearly nine inches of travel.

Oval Frames

Some CNC’d, hand finished oval frames. I really like the washer system for holding the glass and pictures in place. I think there will be a lot more ovals to come.

Created a custom PCB for the Donut Controller. Designed in VectorWorks due to the odd geometry.
