work for FAB Class. My research focus is on kinetic and responsive structures. Therefore several topics converge at this point, in a non hierarchical or stratified order, just echoing and resonating in my head, (and laptop)
Thinking on the Research Project
Laser and Waterjet_ Pressfit Assembly
Understanding and Building Microcontrollers
Prototyping_ 3D Scanning & 3D Printing
Bulding a Capacitance Sensor
Power Tools & NCC Machining
(Dangerous) NCC Miilling and then
Injection Molding and Vacuum Molding
Who am I
HOW TO BUILD [ALMOST] ANYTHING
Studio Level III
Digital Design Fabrication
(...) as planned, this term I am focusing on digital manufacturing processes, so this and my other courses (above) are primarily related to that subject, or forcedly manipulated by be in order to engage in these issues. I would like to think of this period as the "practical training" needed to engage in the research ahead. HOW TO BUILD ANYTHING is then actually one of the main lines of development, as it converges (with Design Studio) the whole spectrum of parallel subjects involved, and develops a coherent (one would like to think so) process.
Prototyping and NCC Machining should give me the skills and knoledge both to understand and conceive the featured design of the kinetic surface.
Microcontrollers, Sensors, Networking and Displays shoul allow me to attempt to realize the design, both in physical and in virtual ways, matter and data, movement of atoms, and flow of bits
