Octopus Walk. Maple and spring door stops. Kind of a first pass at an octopus toy. The proportions are way off, but I wanted to see if there is anything in the movement that I liked.

While we’re on the subject of finishes, I just got this one anodized flat black. It looks great, but it also feels great. Nice work Tru-Tone Metals.

The Hereafter Institute Locket (both Original and Black Editions) will be on display at LACMA this weekend. If you’re in the LA area, check it out.

Been experimenting with some different aluminum finishes lately. Got the mirrored finish down pretty good, but I’ve also been tumbling parts with brass screws. Tumbled on left, sanded on right. I really like how old, dirty, and pitted the parts come out.

Hereafter Institute

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2016

This summer I’ve been working on some projects for the Hereafter Institute.

Gabriel Barcia-Colombo has launched the Hereafter Institute, where participants will have the opportunity to plan their digital afterlife and learn about the artist’s proposed technological solutions for the preservation of the digital soul.

In a private consultation, the artist and his team will introduce options for digital preservation including 3D body scanning, wearable memorialization, and the embedding of personal data into everyday objects.

If you are in the LA area this weekend, you should check it out.

What a great team, project, and experience.
