AZLabs @ O Espaço do Tempo

After many days of work, stress and fun, we seem to have managed to pull through 10 projects to showcase at O Espaço do Tempo! The exhibition opened yesterday, 12th July at Convento da Saudação and will remain in exhibit until the end of the month.

We also have a mini-site with bios of the authors and descriptions of the works, temporarily hosted here. Not only of the works present at the exhibition but also a few others developed during the residency that couldn’t be exhibited by one reason or another. Check them out!

Big thanks are in order to everyone at O Espaço do Tempo for the opportunity we had, and all the in loco support to our needs, you rock. :)

AZLabs @ O Espaço Do Tempo (0day -2)

2 days to go until the exhibit opening of the Audiencia Zero Labs residency at O Espaço Do Tempo!

A few folks seem to be missing in action. Mauricio is back with some news from Interactivos to lend us a hand on pending projects. Mónica and Pedro are still working on B-wind!. Margarida working on his robot Freddy. Victor Silva rehearsing his The Last Words of Dominico. Victor and Marco working on Discardable Beauty. Guilherme finishing his Róbotica Criativa works. And me finishing up Meta Gen Haiku. Catarina and Joel should also show up tomorow with their Micro Dérive.

Website with more info on the presented projects should go online soon. In the meantime if you should show up on Monday the 12th July in Montemor-O-Novo for the exhibit. We will have 7 projects installed under exhibition until the 31st July, and 2 liveacts presented on the exhibition day 12th July.

In the meantime we’ll leave you with some important t-shirt quote material we have recently acquired:
“48 horas são 6 dias de trabalho, em turnos de 8 horas”
“Eu só faço projection mapping quando estou bêbado”
“Não tens pincel para isso. Vai antes de rolo.”
“Queres falar ao telefone? Fala aí! *slap*”

AZ Labs Exhibition @ O Espaço do Tempo

LCD + AltLab + xDA
12 – 31 July 2010
Convento da Saudação | Montemor-o-Novo | Portugal

Exhibition: Monday to Friday – 6pm / 11pm | Saturday and Sunday – 4pm /11pm
Opening: 12th of July, 18h00

Artists : Catarina Mota | Filipe Cruz | Francesco Cerutti | Guilherme Martins | João Maia e Silva | Joël Belouet | Jorge Ribeiro | Pedro Ângelo | Margarida Faria | Maurício Martins | Mónica Mendes | Marco Moura | Mariana Ferreira | Mécia Sá | Ricardo Webbens | Sérgio Ferreira | Tiago Serra | Vitor Lago Silva | Victor Martins

This exhibition presents the results of a unique experiment. For 17 days, 30 members of the Audiencia Zero Labs from all over the country and also abroad lived and worked together on collective projects. New teams were formed, infinite ideas proposed, new tools and technologies experimented with, incredible adventures lived and new friends made. The projects at this exhibit are just the tip of the veil, the true impact of this experience is yet to come.

makerbot as microscope: what we learned

Joel Belouet has been working on an art piece involving microorganisms and needed a support structure for his microscope camera. It turns out the MakerBot sitting on our table was the solution.

At first Joel attached the camera to the z axis and the slide rested on the build platform, but it soon became clear that it would be much better to have the sample remain still and the camera move instead. Inverting the positions meant attaching the slide to the bottom of the z axis platform in order to prevent the camera lens from bumping against it. This setup also allowed him to use the z crank as a focus mechanism. (more…)

(inscrições abertas :: número limitado de vagas)

:::::::::::

A impressão 3D é uma forma original de impressão, no âmbito da tecnologia de prototipagem, em que um objecto tridimensional é criado por uma máquina a partir da acumulação de camadas sucessivas de um dado material (Wikipedia).

O Workshop

O objectivo do workshop é a construção e utilização de uma impressora 3D open source (modelo MakerBot). Os participantes irão construir a máquina de raiz: desde a montagem das componentes electrónicas e extrusor, passando pela mecânica, até à junção de todas as peças. Irão ainda adquirir e aperfeiçoar aptidões e técnicas nas área de fabrico de electrónica, mecânica, modelação 3D, fabricação digital e resolução de problemas com impressoras 3D. O workshop será ainda um lugar privilegiado para adquirir conhecimentos sobre os mais diversos tópicos, como teoria da electrónica, design de firmware, engenharia mecânica, protocolos de série, fabricação digital e desenho 3D.

A impressora 3D construída durante o workshop ficará posteriormente disponível para os membros do altLab (qualquer interessado se pode inscrever no altLab se assim o desejar). Os participantes que desejem construir a sua própria máquina, e levá-la para casa, terão que adquirir o respectivo kit open source no site da MakerBot.

Zach Hoeken

Zach Hoeken likes to dream big, fail big, and win big. His true passion in life is acting as a catalyst and helping others do amazing things. Whether it is creating open source micro controllers (sanguino.cc), robot controller software (replicat.org), object sharing websites (thingiverse.com), self replicating 3D printers (reprap.org), or hacker collectives (nycresistor.com) there is one central purpose: to help other people help themselves create an awesome world to live in. He hopes that someday we can create a world that surpasses even the wildest futures portrayed in science fiction. He thinks the universe is and will continue to be completely rad. Do you want to help?
