One of my latest project wind-O-farm is a 3D printed sculpture based on the data from Pennsylvania wind farms.

Taking data from all of the wind farms in the state of Pennsylvania, we have 3D printed a kinetic window screen sculpture.
The ‘wind-O-farm’ is comprised of a series of turbines, each representing its respective wind-farm. Turbine size, number of blades, location, and even efficiency is be determined by the data. The look of each turbine is reminiscent of farmhouse windmills, which can still be found across the state of Pennsylvania.

It was my first experience with 3D printing, I really enjoyed it.


I worked on this project with Filipa Tomaz, I think it turned out great.

LES Film Festival

Great news, a stop motion short I worked on, The Myth of Pyramis, will be screened at this year’s LES Film Festival March 10th at Grand Opening (139 Norfolk Street). We’re part of the Animation Showcase. Unfortunately, the show is already sold out.

I worked on the short with Phil Groman and Mick Hondlik. It’s our simplified take on the Myth of Sisyphus. The Pyramis character was created on the laser cutter out of cardboard and two push pin eyes. If you have access to a laser cutter you can make your own with this file.

We’ve been hard at work putting a bunch of little Pyramis together for the big event.

3 by 3 - turned piece detail

A quick experiment for (hopefully) a bigger generative art sculpture. Composed of 9 objects, a turned plywood form, a spun metal shape formed over the plywood (more on metal spinning later), and an ice piece cast inside the hollow of the spun metal form. One piece could not be made without the previous. Then times that all by three.

Kinetic Sculpture 5

Monday, December 12th, 2011

Here is a quick video of my Physical Computing final. The kinetic sculpture is a series of 5 pendulums that are controlled by the viewer. When one waves there hand over a sensor, a pendulum is fired. It is kind of addictive.

Some shots of the build process:

First Day of School

Today is my first day of class at the NYU ITP (Interactive Telecommunications Program) program. I’m so excited and can’t wait to be making some cool stuff. Let the craziness begin.
