Thru religion

This was shown to me by my friend C. W. Moss with the explicit instructions to watch it until the end - if Mr. Moss would have followed his own directions he would have seen it it not laser cut but 3D printed... But still cool.

NLC Design #8: Daniel Eatock

Wasn't the last NLC Design about bleeding markers too?

Anyways, this is better.

This is one of Daniel Eatock's Pantone Pen Prints. Basically, what he did was create a little jig that held all of Pantone's pens and rested it on a stack of paper for a month - the resulting prints where numbered 1 through 73 and sold for $1 per their edition number (1/73 = $1.00 and 73/73 = $73.00).

Over the summer I plan on making my own case study bed and making an instructable to go along with it and I was hard pressed to come up with a headboard design - I was considering very clear wood with a laser etched grain pattern, but I wasn't feeling it. Now I think I will use pens and let them bleed for a month. I'm not sure what kind, Pantone is too expensive for a 60" wide headboard. Maybe see the results of some from the 99 cent store. Or maybe just sharpies.

NLC Design #7: Fernando Brízio

These are Fernando Brízio's renewable clothing.

I think this is cool - not so much for dresses, but something else - curtains maybe.

The idea is that the dress is constructed with pockets into which washable felt tip makers are placed, the markers bleed and create a pattern on the dress, and then it is washed and the process starts over again - not sure how renewable that is, but it's cool.

If you google him you will find that her works a lot with bleeding ink.

This work is from Paul Kinsky.

He emailed me this amazing work and said, "I made an algorithm that takes as input a 3d model and outputs pieces that can be pieced together to make a real life version of that 3d model."
