A model of the penicillin molecule by Dorothy Hodgkin from 1945. Sculpture + data visualization + scientific work.
Super happy to be spending November in-residence at the Center for New Art, part of the art program at William Patterson University. I’ll be using their giant robot arm (named Daisy) to carve a 6-foot version of the microscopic dust I digitized last year.
Documentation of the long-string guitar, a single-string electric instrument designed using extruded aluminum beams to be completely adjustable and customizable.
Above, the bridge section, which is attached to the wall using aluminum brackets. The string is attached to an eyebolt, then across a lasercut acrylic bridge and over a humbucker pickup. The electronics include a tone knob and 1/4″ output. The pickup is not soldered to the electronics but connected with a terminal block, making it easy to swap different pickups.
