In 2 months I will be doing two workshops for teachers that work at a college. I will sow them the ways to use a 3D pen and also let them think on how to use it with their students. For the occasion I will have access to lots of 3D pens, so it will be interesting to see how that goes.
For my art I am testing a few things. This afternoon I made some letters with the 3D pen that have become objects. I placed them on a scanner to make an color-copy of the letters. On that result I put again the original letters and took a digital photo of that on my working table. Next step is to put that image on some places online, like Facebook, IUOMA Network and some ‘pataphiscal platforms, and now also on this www.iuoma.org website.
So from idea to plastic to a color-copy into a digital photo and now going into that digital worlds. Multimedia for sure.
At the workshops I will probably let the teachers first make a letter of their choice to let them test the 3D pens and to see if they get the idea. We will collect the letters and will try to make a word of it that guides them into the next assignment. It will be an interactive workshop for sure.
Maybe they should make a cup to to put the letters in:
