Oh, The Weather Outside Is Frightening

As part of a new project on which I'm working - "Cold Genius" - I needed to draw a LOT of snowflakes in Rhino, which is possible using a 30:60:60 degree triangle and cutting out chunks, then duplicating and mirroring it and rotating copies around an axis.

Just had the most horribly non-achieving week. Everything I tried to do ended in problems which can only be solved by waiting for tools and materials to be delivered.

For those who are interested, I've posted… Continue

Freedom of speech, update

Further to my last post, I received the following mail which repudiates the information I posted about the work of Nicolas Estrada, which I published in good faith from information given to me by him. I have received an email from the curator of this show asking me very specifically to remove the erroneous information from the blog entry and to remove any details about the misunderstanding too.… Continue
