Back in December, having great reviews and it being a part of the open source community (and also price point) I placed an order for the Prusa i3 Mk2, 3D printer kit. Finally arrived Feb. 13th, and just at the end of the last week I finished building and calibrating it.
Photo above is my first full print, about 26 hours in, least 20 hours to go. The piece is of another artist's, David Van Ness, and it will be sent over to the Glitch Art Is Dead show in Minneapolis, along with another I'll be printing by Jame Usill, and one I printed before of Mark Klink.
WHICH ALSO HEY,
a few of my videos were accepted into the show and will be on display. Really excited as glitch artists from across the states and over seas will be coming together. There will be workshops, performances, and lectures- it's going to be so wonderful. I'll be out there March 18th and 19th.
Very soon I will be ordering a Raspberry Pi kit . That with the Prusa, will be used for an upcoming solo show in Chicago at Autotelic Studios, during the month of June-July 15th. After that show I plan to use my printer to focus on creating experimental speakers to study shaping sound,
and also hiding from everyone.
