As an artist working with various forms of technology, I often find myself imagining creations just out of my reach technologically. My sculpture Blink is a perfect example. I first thought of this piece several years ago but various problems – like how to make working eyelids – forced this project into mental storage. My recent residency at Autodesk’s Pier 9 and their facility packed with a dizzying collection of tools, equipment, and experienced shop staff presented a unique opportunity to make this piece a reality.
I am a maker. As founder of MakerBlog, I enjoy sharing ingenious creations with others! I also enjoy the random and unique!
