I met Hank Schiffmacher in 2012, when Joost van Praag Sigaar and I were pitching him a few creative campaign ideas for the Tattoo Museum. Nearly ten years later, it’s awesome to see he’s still doing great work, and funny how things from the past pop-up where you least expect them. This time, thanks to my middle kid getting her first Pfizer vaccine!
The pitch, down memory lane, here. Now I have four band-aids designed by the King of Tattoo, if I ever fall off my keyboard. 😀
I remember tinkering with Processing when it came out; and sometime around 2002-2007 I joined a workshop with world-renown Tomato Design Collective to create ‘reality scanners’, in which we turned webcams into ‘life scanners’, and eventually held an exhibition about it. (it was a while back, I can’t find pictures of it!)
Anyways, turns out Arduino uses Processing as its language, and it’s the language in which the electronics of the Cubesat is being programmed by team-mate Mikelis Putnieks. So perhaps, it’s the right time to pick it up again.
I have no patience, so when it was time to get my 2D designs into 3D, I was looking for something fast.
Many years ago I knew how to use Maya, and I had started learning Blender, Solidworks, CATIA and Fusion360… but today I just didn’t have the patience to start the learning curve for a fully-flung 3D software.
For now, TinkerCAD seemed the fastest way to upload my 2D SVG’s to create an approximate visual of the two structure designs I’m working on.
