shouldercam

I attended 2010 ZERO1 SJ Biennial as a visitor and spectator. I decided to try to capture as much as possible to bring back to Pensacola. In order to foster this I tried to design a set of mobile broadcast tools in order to record the events and interviews. I purchased a new mobile camera built into a ear worn bluetooth module called Looxcie. I also designed and built a shoulder mounted remote controlled tilt-pan web cam the shouldercam. this is an wearable adaptation of accelerometer controlled pan-tilt unit.

the first design was to build a shoulder pad—sort of like a piece of armor, but I found it too complicated trying to quickly design a harness.

I then realized I could build it into the shoulder strp of my backpack that I would undoubtably wear when I was out.

fontanaBot

a machine inspired by a nostalgia of modernism, an absurdist algorithm.

fontanaBot (2008) is a sattelite arm programmed to autonomously design and execute ‘slash series’ works as an homage to Lucio Fontana. the robotic arm is equipped with a vibrating razor blade. the programming decides the number of slashes, where they start and where they end. fontanaBot is a collaboration from the Mr. Bricolage team, Asmuth & Stone. click here to go to the Mr. Bricolage blog.
