Thermochromic Tutu goes through phase change…

… and comes out the other side glowing!

Image

Controlled by Arduino and over 3000 hand soldered heat sinks, it took it’s time coming!

Plans are afoot to show it in action, you can watch this space but I can’t promise how long it’ll take to appear!

Over and out

OK, I know you’ve waited a LONG LONG Loooooooong time to see this, but…. Drumroll please…..

Finally, I managed to finish the costume, the tutu, the elephant in the room, and get it installed at the Edinburgh Science Festival art trail! Wahooooooo! Why don’t you go along and have a look, it’s in Summerhall for the next two weeks (well just over one really!)!

If you don’t live anywhere near Edinburgh then here are some (not very great) pictures to whet your appetite!

I would like to say a HUGE thank you to allenomis for the use of the Amazing mannequin (designed and built by her and Brian at MAKLab Glasgow)

 

KNITWEAR will become your new currency! Loes Veenstra, you’re my hero!

When I said (not that long ago and those of you who know me, may remember the conversation) that cardigans will become the new currency I may have been onto something!

Wool and jumpers/cardigans are so underrated and I find it hard to express my appreciation and love for these items!

Here’s a wee film about a women in Rotterdam that knitted 500 jumpers that weren’t worn until this was made and book produced about her and them! AMAZING!

Since 1955, Loes Veenstra knitted over 500 sweaters and stored them in her home on the 2nd Carnissestraat in Rotterdam. The sweaters have never been worn. Until today.

The sweaters are all presented in a book called “Het Verzameld Breiwerk van Loes Veenstra uit de 2e Carnissestraat” designed by Christien Meindertsma, published by Stichting Kunstimplantaat.

Grace Cathedral in San Fran – Ribbons like Light!

Wow…. 20 miles of ribbon!!!

Image

I just read an amazing blog piece by mymodernmet.com about an art installation…

Graced with Light incorporates both music and video projection.

Artist Anne Patterson is behind Graced With Light, an installation consisting of nearly 1,000 satin ribbons with colors inspired by stained glass. It took the artist months to prepare, which she did in her art studio in Manhattan by constructing a 3/16-inch scale model of it with embroidery floss. Then, on site, it took Patterson and the Grace Cathedral community eight days to hand-assemble the project.

The picture speak for themselves I think, AMAZING and Beautiful, Please can we do more like this in our public buildings, so simple yet so effective!

I PRESENT – THE origami inspired Thermochromic TUTU that Glows!!!!

Well, a first mock up at least!

Things have been busy at Codedchromics HQ recently and we may just have something very delightful to show you all very soon. In the meantime here’s a sneaky peek at a piece of costumeI’ve been making. More to follow imminently! (there is a deadline!!!! Arrghhhhhhh). ImageImageImageImage

It’s not looking at it’s best in these photographs but I thought it would be good to show what I’ve been up to… we’re working on a little movie to show it in all of it’s glory and different states.

Watch this space and thanks for checking us out so far.

Tiree Tech Wave – Making things

Last week Ruth Aylett participated in the Tiree Tech wave. Apart from meeting some really interesting cool folk she was also part of a small team who built cybernetic Fecundity.

Using Arduino, tilt sensors, light sensors and a motor they created this cyclical interaction box!
