Made two more IUOMA logos to complete the set. This time with ABS plastics and the 3D pen.
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.
On April 24th 2016 I made this new IUOMA logo with a 3D pen using PLA plastics (White, grey, black and brown). An experiment to see if you can construct any logo you want and have the object instantly in your hands.
On the backside of the object you can see the structure created with the white PLA which was the basis for the logo. I signed it with IUOMA 2016 which goes easy as well. On a brown wooden background the logo looks like this:
As you can see the plastic of a 3D pen gives an unique structure like the brush with paint. I personally like what ou can do with such a 3D pen and plan to make more objects. The time it too to make this object was about one hour.
On 21-2-12 I made these sheets and passed them out. Not a lot happened. I still had some lying here and pass them on now and then. Suddently on facebook they revived. Especially this version:
“E” from France started adding on one and published it on some Facebook groups. It was piched up by the Mail-Art network on Facebook, and started to be added and passed on to. It resulted in lots of versions which are now circulating and are being added too. I started to collect them now, and probably make a video from that to show the diversity of such a Facebook wave….
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.
For people doing research, please notice that the old IUOMA website is still available. I started the website in 1996 when the HTTP protocols first were used to make the WWW websites. It grew from there and was completely typed by hand.
Because maintaining that old structure because too time consuming and also I didn’t wantbto throw away the old building, it is still there through:
Just try it….. The new www.iuoma.org website is build around that old website because I use a trick. The old website was done with direct addressing, and the new website is done with relative addressing based on a new link to the root. This works out just fine leaving two websites alive where I can go from the old one to the new one without any problem.
Also historically it is interesting. The old website gives the feeling of how that old programming went. The new one is a blog with all the advantages given by WordPress in maintaining such a website.
For more historic information you should visit:
Ans look for the old URL address of the starting periode:
It brings you back in those old years of building websites and you can actually look back on the structure there were back in the 90-ies.
Check any of the old versions of the website, and see and read all that was published decades ago. Funny how the Wayback machine has captured all these old Geocities websites as a timemark for the new world to research
And remember, before the WWW-years I used the BBS-structures that made information available through the digital channels as well. Charles Francois (Belgium) documented the structure quite well:
