NYC Artist Replicates His Entire Studio at 1/5 Miniature Scale, Using Putty & 3D-Printed Pieces #3DPrinting #ArtTuesday
Brian Caverly is an artist with a studio in the neighborhood of Ridgewood in the borough of Queens, NYC. Over several years he painstakingly re-created his entire studio – down to the tags adorning fire extinguishers and multiple, independent chains articulating his ‘Fahgettaboudit’ Kryptonite bike lock – at 1/5 scale, displayed inside a wooden shipping crate. The piece, titled Studio Abandon, is currently on view at the Queens Museum as part of their annual exhibition of Queens-based artists.
The scale is rendered at 1/5th and includes materials as diverse as photographs, foam core, acrylic & enamel paints, wood, sawdust, tape, clay, fiberglass insulation (in the walls?!?), epoxy, sculpting putty, plexi, metal, and even PLA 3D-printed parts – WOW!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
