Private view invite

Things are being finalised now.
I am building the plynths to exhibit the new works on even though I dont like the idea of them for showing sculpture.

Cutting with CNC

This is the machine in action that is cutting out my plastic components. It reads files I have created in my laptop from digital sculpting.
It then follows cutting paths using a vibrating knife.
Potentially I can design a work on my laptop and fabricate it minutes later.Unfortunately I cannot afford the machine yet so have to send the files to Storm Cutting Forms in Congleton. Thanks Lee, Steve and Kevin.
Ps I sent this video to my blog from my mobile. Great!

An even sneakier preview. A visualisation only.
I need to find an image for a press release and some text to promote the event. No point in having a show otherwise. A catchy headline about me,the work etc. mmmm.
Will let you know the date of the show soon.

Why should architects, industrial designers,3d film directors, computer games manufacturers have all the fun with computer technology.
Sculpture can be conceived visualised and manufactured using the power of the computer.

sneak preview

I have an exhibition in The Chapman Gallery, Salford University.
From 8th to 26th March.
Private view 16th March. Come along
Im a bit concerned. All the work is still virtual. I am having the digital elements cut out using CNC. But I wont know what the sculptures look like until I start assembling the bits.

Pre-digital work.Car free day Bristol.

I took a real taxi and sliced it up. This work was done before I started experimenting with scanning objects and manufacturing them using CNC.
