Yosemite HD II
A 200+ mile backpacking experience through Yosemite National Park captured by Colin Delehanty and Sheldon Neill. This project was filmed over the course of 10 months. We spent a combined 45 days in the park capturing the images in this video.
Tomorrow is Artists’ Colony Day at the Art & History Museums-Maitland! Chris Ware and I will be running printmaking demonstrations while other demos, activities and projects are taking place all across the A&H grounds. The event kicks off Art31, a month of community-based experimentation and collaboration.
Check out Art31.org for all of the events this month!
Artists create a work of art, you download the PDF, print and assemble, and Voilà! You now have a work of art in your collection!

From my friend and artist, Adam Rowlett.
When you work for a 3D printing company, you get the same question a lot: “Can I make anything useful with this?” The story of Robohand, a 3D printed prosthesis for amputees, is one of the most powerful answers to that question. 3D printing brings to the table the potential for inexpensive, and thus easily replaceable, prostheses. California-based nonprofit Not Impossible Labs got wind of the Robohand project and flew its co-creator Richard van As (himself an amputee) to Los Angeles for a training session, eventually taking the prosthetic printing skills they learned, and two MakerBot Replicator 2s, to the Mother of Mercy Hospital in Sudan late last year. Not Impossible deemed the campaign Project Daniel, borrowing the name from a teenage amputee who told Time Magazine two years ago, “without hands, I can’t do anything.” It’s a place where the loss of a limb carries the very real possibility of death. Last year, he received a 3D printed arm.
I love this interview with Atlanta-based artist, Jiha Moon. Naturally, I am most interested in her typical day as an artist.
“Describe a typical day in your life as an artist.
I am an artist and I am also a mother and a wife who is multi-tasking many things at the same time. I get up, check my email, social networks, news from here and Korea online, and go to my studio by 11 a.m. I work in my studio until I pick up my son at his school around 5 p.m., and then come home and cook dinner for my family and spend time with them. After my son goes to bed, I do some correspondence or other business-related work on the computer. If I am not too tired I often go back to my studio by 9 or 10 p.m. and work until I go to bed.”
I have attempted to develop my thinking in such a way that the work I’ve done is not me- not to confuse my feelings with what I produced. I didn’t want my work to be an exposure of my feelings. So I worked in such a way that I could say it’s not me. That accounts for the separation.
