Flower Instructions, great video instructions for Sun Dial (not mine), Centerfold Pictures, New Curvy Bits-“Merged Curves”
Flower instructions video I made.
The flower combines some aspects of two flowers (one of which is the Lotus flower) and another I think I’ve seen and then modifies and shapes the product. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r5eeJScdEQ4
Video instructions for the Sun Dial I originally posted pictoral instructions for were made and posted here http://oqueemeuenosso.blogspot.com/2010/08/origami-modular-relogio-do-sol-sun-dial.html The blog is also great to check out; it has great links and instructions. It is very well done and I always appreciate people making instructions since mine tend to be minimalistic. The blog were it is posted http://oqueemeuenosso.blogspot.com/ .
Centerfold-The organizers really worked hard and so many people praised the bag it wasn’t even funny. So thanks to everyone who is willing to put in the work. Positives-I liked the lack of ticketing, but that may just be personal preference. The hotel let the rooms be used later than initially indicated. The bar was great, drinkable coffee a dollar and if you wanted it with a bit of chemical happiness that was very reasonable. The DJ in the bar was great. They organized shuttles to the exhibit. Negatives-Just the smells in the hotel, it was not clean the smell of stale cigarette smell was overwhelming, but I also am hypersensitive to these things. Indiana reststops scare me I actually took photos in a stall just so I’d have proof of the stuff I saw etched into the stall walls and door. So a thank you to everyone that ran it, I know it’s a boatload of work. To the people I met-you were wonderful, keep playing around. To everyone I should have met but didn’t, hopefully I will some you at some future time. Shar’s presentation of some 5OSME slides reminded James and I how awesome that was. There was a lot of 5OSME people there. The guests were Robert Lang, Tomoko Fuse, and David Brill. Took a cat class with David. Missed Tomoko and Langs classes cause I can’t tell time.
Here are where the Centerfold photos start http://www.flickr.com/photos/christine42/4922078643/
Finally these are some of the curved pieces I’ve been working on. Getting larger is an ongoing challenge of mine, as is thinking of making things decent for display instead of everything being tests and getting distracted by the next shiny idea.
