HowToMakeAlmostAnything2010-Hiro Tanaka 2-1: my former (past) works While my final project is for making "Natural" Plants move and walk, I am also interested in "Artificial" Plants-like Object. (I don't know why but in general Architects are interested in plants. In my opinion, there are some commonalities between architecture(buildings) and plants...) MIT Researchers: make big things out of small, interlocking 3D printed composite components For the most part the size of an object that’s 3D printed can’t be larger than the build volume of the printer; the only exceptions are printers that can print onto existing objects, so a printed object could be repositioned in a way that allows the printer to continue printing onto it. For this reason, size constraints are a limiting factor with the entire industry of 3D printing. The common sense solution for bigger parts is to build bigger printers, and some have gone that route, but common sense will take us only so far. When Neil Gershenfeld, director of MIT’s Center for Bits and Atoms, addresses the problem of going bigger, his wisdom says go small.

blog: Archive romwe update allright, a quick update on the Romwe art theft! let me start by saying that the artwork is of disney characters, and i cannot ask any kind of financial compensation for the sweater sales. if i did, i would essentially be making money off of disney’s characters, which is illegal. Romwe contacted me this morning (not as a reply to my initial e-mail to them, but in response to the social media attention). after explaining that they removed the item from their store, they state the following: “We know your art from deviantart, from which we could not find any proper contact information (we only got this address from one customer who knew you just now.). So we only leave a note there for you. Unfortunately, it seems you haven’t noticed it.

Hive 1000; Architecture & The City Habitat Manhattan/ A Housing for 1000 artists Delancey St., Lower Manhattan, NY A live-work environment for 1000 artists that explores a particular strain of visionary (And now sometimes realized) urbanism, involving spherical geometries; this project contributes to a wider understanding of the sphere as geometry. ​ Pointed to one extreme where subdivisions and surfaces are coincident. The other extreme pointed to subdivisions privileging the structure qualities of minimal surface geometry. My Interest falls in between these two spectrums. ​ Digital Craft and Architectural Geometry: The BAC Summer 2012 » G1: Plane/Sphere Hybrid G-C Narrative: Particulars- The G-C models were a study of plane manipulating the sphere. The act of slicing the sphere leaves sphere in pieces. The manipulation of pieces was the exploration.

Whittling All the pieces on this page are each whittled from one piece of wood using only a selection of knives and scalpels. Here we have nine balls in seperate cages on the top and the same on the bottom, with three revolving cages inside each other, with a ball in the centre, for the middle pillar. It stands 5.5 inches high and is 2.5 inches square, carved in lime. The fan is a real challenge for any whittler. Carved from one piece and then split into 32 blades 1mm thick when wet.Just make sure that the timber has a strong grain to assist splitting after carving. This fan is 8.5 inches across the diameter.
