Knicks LED light, use of digital fabrication for design prototyping

This light was in the making for a long time and is now finally completed. See earlier post. Its design includes several digital fabrication processes like laser cutting (acrylic and brass) and rapid prototyping (gold-plated stainless steel) using Ponoko‘s distributed manufacturing system. All metal surfaces are gold plated taking advantage of Ponoko’s US based production hub which offers rapid prototyping directly into metal.

Its dimensions are: 600 x 150 x 710 mm and the light head holds four 1watt LED’s.

On first ‘site’

Finally I have my first website. Using ‘Prosite’ on Behance made it easy to put together a site with the look and functionality I wanted. All the previous work I put into my project pages on Behance – images, captions and more – payed off and loaded automatically into my design. See my earlier post about the project page here.

Starting from a Prosite template (in this case basic white), the web interface made it easy to customise the layout without touching a line of code. I liked the option to create my own icon for  iPad and other mobile devices. This icon appears if my site is added to the home screen of such a device.

Now I am set to let this site grow over time and become the center of my web presents. Please let me know if you have any comments or suggestions for my site.

New to ArtFlock

Since yesterday I am on ArtFlock thanks to Sharon and Amy who got me there in the first place.
I will be interested in the responses I might get to my works in this art and craft related (web2) space. The first work I uploaded is the DP bowl, this piece is part of a body of work that uses mathematical formulas I manipulated as their source. Despite a lot of technologies involved in creating this object there is a significant amount of manual work necessary to get this work finished, both on the keyboard as well as on the workbench. Tomorrow, 5th September 2008, will be the opening of Digitaler Formenschatz at the Galerie Handwerk in Munich, Germany. This exhibition intents to show the impact of new technologies on and the response to these by makers and the crafts in general. I have six related works on display at this show.
