examples about my ideas on 3D printmaking; idiosyncratic “failures” of the 3D printing process producing unexpected results. I’m not sure how I feel about all of them, but as drawings they’re one way to start thinking about the materiality of this strange filament thing… I’m particularly interested in the neon yellow “xox” – that was […]

I think much of the instability was because of some necessary kludges (ugh, zip ties…) and that I used printed parts for a lot of the assembly. I knew [beta_01] was always just a […]
