I've been working with ATTINY13a chips just recently. The specific idea I'm talking about here is to make a UV exposure unit specifically targeted at lenses. I'm doing other shenanigans with TINY13's which I'll go into elsewhere. The basic idea is that lenses can get fungus strands growing in them, which in turn ruins the … Continue reading PCB making – variably frustrating
I'm currently on a break from school, in case you don't know, I'm currently doing an IT post grad diploma, I have re-discovered [a.] why I am an artist, and [b.]The fact that I don't like computers when they don't do what I want. (I have also developed allergies to web programming and data analytics) … Continue reading Robotry – Barely adequate robotics.(Starting build)
Another old tutorial I re-discovered from stencilrevolution.com (I wrote it in 2007 - Only thing that's really changed is I've since studied photography, and I use less duct tape) Making a sketch book. I go through a lot of sketch books, more than one a month, sometimes one a week, usually I just buy the … Continue reading How to make a sketchbook – Perfect bound (glued spine).
I was minding my own business wandering about the inter-schnauzer when I vaguely wondered whatever happened to stencilrevolution.com - I used to spend waay too much time there (this was before I started doing photography seriously, I used to paint, including on walls which the local council was nice enough to prepare just for me). … Continue reading An old gimp stencil tutorial.
So, I've gotten interested in electronics over the past couple of years, this has come about in part from my being surrounded by broken electronic gear whilst working as an art school audio-visual technician. Also in part from my experience in photography, and also in as much as I have developed a fascination with weird … Continue reading Making art(‘ish) stuff with electronics.
This is pretty rough and ready, I can confirm that this does work as an exposure unit though. THE BASIC PLACE THIS IDEA CAME FROM. Much of this project has come from a need for this device - In my studies in antique photography I frequently used ultraviolet exposure units for exposing 19th c. photographic … Continue reading Ultraviolet exposure units I have known (and mostly not liked).
I've just realised that it's a year since I last updated this... I'm still alive. I'm no longer working as a photo technician for an art school - so I no longer have to worry about somebody else reportedly owning my output (and other people getting research funding for working on projects I'm working on … Continue reading And still alive…
