What Not To Do Clock

Saturday, February 15th, 2020

Pulled together a quick clock project with Tom Igoe. Tom works on the insides, I work on the outsides. We made so many bad choices along the way, we decided to call it the “What Not To Do” Clock.

Raspberry Pi Blocks for Maker Faire

Tuesday, November 14th, 2017

The Raspberry Pi Foundation put together a video of the “blocks” I built for them for Maker Faire a few months ago.

The project was a lot of fun and everybody was a delight to work with. Thanks Matt for yet another great collaboration.

The Counterpointer

Monday, July 27th, 2015

I was lucky enough to work with a great artist and friend, Luisa Pereira, on her latest project: the Counterpointer. I just made the wooden box, Weezie and Yotam did all of the rest.

“The Counterpointer is a synthesizer that generates Baroque harmonies to a melody input by the user. The one on show at Red Bull was a collaboration between Luisa Pereira and Yotam Mann.”

Bug Repller Prototype

Michelle Temple, Eric Rosenthal, and I collaborated on some sweet little bug repellers. Eric designed the circuit, Michelle made and populated the boards, and I pulled together the housings.

The housings are powder coated tins with acrylic face plates.

For Those Who Wait Case Build

Sunday, January 27th, 2013

Crank Case complete

I recently built a crank with wooden case for the video artist Gabe Barcia-Colombo. It is for his piece For Those Who Wait.

In his words: “”For Those Who Wait” is an interactive video sculpture about the physicality of time. 10 video projected clocks hang motionless in a room. As the viewer winds up a crank the clocks come to life, their hands spinning out of control until they self destruct in a variety of animations.”

Turning the crank and controlling the projected clocks is very satisfying.
