Formed by a combination of digitally controlled and manual processes, this work can decorate a wall as well as a table. A CNC router cuts the pattern I designed, guiding the manual deformation of the aluminium composite material into a 3d form. This material is lightweight, durable and colourfast, all qualities that make them ideal for creating lasting individually designed works.

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.

With over 200 objects from 26 countries on display Unexpected Pleasures represents a significant global survey of contemporary jewellery.
The ring by Camilla Prasch features on the cover of the catalogue and the NGV invite.
First on show at the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, 20 April – 26 August 2012, this exhibition will also tour to the Design Museum in London, 5 Dec 2012 – 3 Mar 2013. Melbourne based designer and maker Dr. Susan Cohn (interview with The Age) has curated this exhibition for the Design Museum and is also co-author of the substantial catalogue documenting this event as well contributing to the discussion about contemporary design and making.
I find interesting that 2/3 of the makers who have been selected to contribute works come from only four countries: Australia, Germany, The Netherlands and the UK. Which seems to make these the centre of global contemporary jewellery.
The following piece of mine was selected for this exhibition:
This object has its origin in mathematics. An equation describing a ‘minimal surface’, has been altered to explore its aesthetic properties. This form was built using ‘fused deposition manufacturing (FDM)’ a rapid prototyping process. This process generates a rough machine surface creating an intriguing surface pattern.

What goes round, comes round. I was surprised to find my post ‘True digital art on iPad by David Hockney‘ almost word for word as well as image for image re-posted and littered with advertising by ‘theproductjudge’. As this post was intended as a thank-you to David Hockney’s for his generosity, I am frustrated by this syndication, code for rip-off. Frustratingly they even ripped-off my title and achieved swiftly a much higher Google ranking.
However, my blog stats suddenly increased as one of my images showing David Hockney’s drawings on iPads has gone up in Google’s ranking – number 4 if one searched ‘David Hockney iPad’ – due to this appropriation.
Similar to this but legit: Martyn Gayford wrote online about Hockney’s current exhibition of iPad drawings in Paris, days later this text was printed – ink on paper – in the ‘Canberra Times’ including the image of me with the iPads taken at an earlier event at ANU School of Art.
So, what ever is available can reappear in many forms. I just would have liked to been asked before someone uses my words and images (intellectual property) and tries to make a commercial gain.
