555 KUBIK facade projection

Friday, July 24th, 2009

555 KUBIK | facade projection | from urbanscreen on Vimeo.

The people at urban screen have put together an impressive presentation at the Kunsthalle in Hamburg.
from the vimeo page:

The conception of this project consistently derives from its underlying architecture – the theoretic conception and visual pattern of the Hamburg Kunsthalle. The Basic idea of narration was to dissolve and break through the strict architecture of O. M. Ungers “Galerie der Gegenwart”. Resultant permeabilty of the solid facade uncovers different interpretations of conception, doctor geometry and aesthetics expressed through graphics and movement. A situation of reflexivity evolves – describing the constitution and spacious perception of this location by means of the building itself.

Clayton Boyer has designed and built a number of exceptionally beautiful and artful wooden clocks – and sells the plans to make most of them. Some of the videos are made by customers who have completed his designs and I can assume that Clayton is not personally responsible for their choice of music.

RepRap, a machine that can print more copies of itself

Wednesday, July 8th, 2009

RepRap from Adrian Bowyer on Vimeo.

RepRap is a low cost 3D printer that can make many things out of plastic, including nearly all the parts to make another one. It’s like having a photo printer but instead of replicating photos you can replicate objects. In theory, it could supply many of the objects you use around the house.
