I came out to my first Art Engine event last week, the 3D Printing intro,
and quite enjoyed the vibe and knowledge shared. I'm hoping to make it out
to one of the next open Modlab nights but figured a quick hello
introduction email might start some wheels and conversations turning.
- The "art" side of my brain was awoken a decade ago when I first went
to Burning Man. I've built some large installations (25' geodesic cat
13' mushroom <http://www.flickr.com/photos/damaradeaella/1342792665/>)
for it in years past and enjoyed watching friends in the Toronto Burner
community apply their energies to fire projects (like Super Street
involved with the Site3 hacker space.
- On a close-to-monthly basis I put out a podcast via
steppinofftheedge.com that are centered around conversations with those
who have a spirit of novelty and are demonstrating through action their
desire to make a better environment for all. Some past
guests<http://steppinofftheedge.com/guest-archive/>have included 3D
House Printer Behrokh
the University of Southern California and Open
Source Ecology member Leifur
Next episode should be out in a day or two with Andy Bichlbaum of The
Yes Men Fix The
- Have a few ideas of projects that I'd like to start or assist with the
creation of through the ModLab. The one that I've been best able to
articulate is a Kinect + Projector project to replicate the $10K music
making functionality of a Reactable with a $150 budget. Pretty pictures and
a bit more detail here -

picked up a large street lamp light casing at auction few months back that
could have much potential for LED lights + interactive control. Would love
to chat with any modlabbers who have experience in either of those realms
at an upcoming lab.
Looking forward to meeting more of you in the new year if not before.
