I've got the basic circuit and programming working for my Candy Computing ver. .01 project.

And a new candy mold! It's made with Smooth-On products.

I'm already working on the Scrapyard Guitars , workshop gathering stuff to make one and two string guitars with. I hope lots of people show up.

Durham Art Gallery

We are all set up at the Durham Art Gallery. So far we have been getting settled in and checking out the town of Durham. We have the good fortune of being here on the same weekend as Norman White's annual weekender at the Normill, an old seed mill converted to a sort of arts center and residence. There's lots of interesting people here to meet and hang out with.

Lick My LEDs!

That's the name of my new installation which I am preparing for the Durham Art Gallery in Ontario. The Common Pulse Media Arts Festival will be the weekend of June 10-12. I'll be doing a three week residency as part of the festival. The concept of the project is Candy Computing ver .01. The basic form is Lectric Lollies. I'm combining my recent interest in hard candy making, microcontrollers and electronics. My friend Robert Pasternak is helping out with some cool packaging.
