Some more new drawings got ready today. All conected to the digital human beings; how the digital world in influencing our way to see things and to react on things. I have published a large set from the complete series on my digital portfolio:
Lately I have made some videos of the productions with the 3D Pen. The IUOMA logo concepts and the Fluxus Words are two samples that are now ready including the box:
I made this special box from Blue and Green ABS in which I now hold the 4 IUOMA logos I made with the 3D pen as well. Al kind of colours and versions for a basic idea of a logo with the 5 letters IUOMA. Will be handy for the next workshops with the 3D pen I will be giving.
The logo’s are made with PLA plastics. You don’t see the difference, but ABS-plastics is harder and needs a higher temperature to make.
Again two more brain cells from Ryosuke Cohen in Japan arrived in Breda, Netherlands. Number 942 (above) and 943 (below). The project continues since 1985 and 31 years later the 1000 th issue is coming in sight. With an issue each 10 days this still takes a long time….. But we enjoy every new issue that brightens the world with all these icons from a mail-art network.
In 2 weeks I will be doing two workshops on the use of the 3D pen for two groups of teachers at a college. They will be guided into the possibilities of using the new tool in their education, but it could also be fun. I made the letter A with black PLA plastic, and the golden cage was made lateron as a cube surrounding the letter A.
I used a MyRywell Expert pen which can use both PLA and ABS plastics. In the course I will use this pen as well for the teachers to use and test.
Here yoy can see the new possibilities the new pen set gives. Combination of broad lines, smaller lines, and very small lines. All in the VIP style where I write a Visual Impulse Poem (VIP) on the paper, but I guess the viewers won’t be able to read it too. They need to search for the lines and the message.
Just bought a set of new pens, Rotring 2000 isograph, with several types of nibs. It means I can work faster with indian ink and have more control on the broadness of the lines I use in my work. I normaly use the traditional nibs, since that works the best, but for design, these pens are very good indeed. Teset days I worked on cleaning them and testing them. One of the papers used for that (see below) I lateron used as writing paper for a letter to De Villo Sloan in USA…….
On my new drawings you will see the results since they are used now in the new drawings I make on a weekly basis.
Whenever I get the chance I make some new VIP’s (Visual Impulse Poetry) just to catch the thought that was on my mind. It takes some time to dry for them since they are made with acrylic paint and indian ink. But I like the results…..
If you watch long enough you will find the thought. Maybe you choose another word as I wrote down, but that is all part of these works.
