PROJECTS. Microcontrollers as Material We’ve developed a set of tools and techniques that make it easy to use microcontrollers as an art or craft material, embedding them directly into drawings or other artifacts. We use the ATtiny45 from Atmel, a small and cheap (~$1) microcontroller that can be glued directly to paper or other objects. We then construct circuits [...] Codeable Objects Codeable Objects is a library for Processing that enables novice coders, designers and artists to rapidly design, customize and construct an artifact using geometric computation using geometric computation and digital fabrication The programming methods provided by the library allow the user to program a variety of structures and designs with simple code and geometry.

Create A Non-Existing Man Via Light Painting [Not For The Faint Of Heart] We have shown screen doing 3D extrusion before using both iPads and iPhones, but this is the first time we are featuring a tutorial that uses a 30″ monitor.

Create A Non-Existing Man Via Light Painting [Not For The Faint Of Heart]

Photographer Zeke Adam (Flickr) agreed to share the secrets behind his non-existing man series, which basically light paints a non existing man. Duh… While Zeke uses high end software like 3D Studio Max and Cinema 4D, similar results can be achieved with free software (like Blender, which we featured before). Some of the steps are too complex to include in this tutorial, but we will refer you to the relevant places to learn or download shortcuts.

Light Painting: the art of moving light, by Patrick Rochon

I started doing Light Painting photography in Montreal, Canada in 1992. I also used to do “traditional” photography but in 1997, flying to Tokyo from New York, I realized I would dedicated all my time to this art, I officially declared myself a Light Painter and never looked back at traditional photography. Now everything I do involves the movement of light. With Light Painting, I like collaborating with dancers and performers, shooting portraits, fashion, cars, high-end products and nudes. When I first started doing Light Painting with my friends I soon realized something special was happening.

Light Painting? There's An App For That

And I know what you all been thinking. Those artsy folks with their artsy iPads. If only I had that software my light painting extrusions would be far, far cooler. Well, there you have it. Holographium is an iPhone/iPad app that converts text into iPhone patterns which can be dragged in front of the camera to extrude 3D light painted text. The app costs 1.99 on the app store here.
