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.
Worked on 4 special enveloppes this day which went out just now. They fit is a series I made and one special envelope for Canada…..
Enveloppe for Richard Canard just to keep contact. Also he will turn 75 next month, so want to keep his mailbox filled till a special event takes place.
In Chicago Keith A. Buchholz has organized a special project in collaboration with the fluxfest 2016, so I am sending him this envelope for that NOW.
And another enveloppe for the Miss Noma Fun Club at the addres of De Villo Sloan. We will see how that developes. The search for more details on Miss Noma continues.
And below a special envelope for Mailarta in Canada. He/She sent me a bunch of goodies and I am returning the signed artistamp portrait for the collection.
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.
Some more Fluxus Words envelopes went out this week. More details about this project you can find on:
The envelopes went out to Heleen de Vaan (Netherlands) and Mars Tokyo (USA) and visualize some new words that got alive today.
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.
