I created Six

When I had all of my equipment working correctly I had the last of my cards done via apple photos printing. These occurred when I had not produced a few of my models in singular.

I made one of these cards the featured image was the inside. also without trademark  but two 3D printed models. The one pictured is the first printed.

Custom Aluminium 3d Print (shot Peen))

And six of these cards without the trademark and the one3D printed  titanium model

Not for resale it shows some scale of anything

I had aimed to give them to those who actually helped me with the models. In one way or another.  I have given out only one! They helped me in actually placing the model in my hands!!!!

By all accounts one should have gone to Imaterialise/ materialise however that never occurred. Doubt as to who produced the card. If I was using someone logo etc. Plus I did not know who to send  it to. Strange what people notice.

Some things just do not work out. Dated card, timeless model. Out of touch…

Inside of the above card

Just to add the photo on the front of the second card was the titanium model I strategically placed the apple in the centre of the hexagon and took the shot. Maybe it was from the packaging no editing. The inside shot was from the back of the first card with a real shadow

On the path……?

Expressing some love one image at a time has created a situation where even when trying to factually depict actual objects.  Without the real object to touch even that seems to be insufficient  to convince its actuality. Even when all that can be submitted for review is photo, image, illustration, tiff or gif based. And then is perceived to be only an idea. I have many ideas yet to be formed.

Some imagery on my front page is a from what is a precursor to production via 3d print-ing.  which had been imported into a photo editing program and was not edited. In conjunction with that which is the actual.

I am aware how the visual domain is indeed trapped within the structure of language. But what has been more or a surprise is how what something actual is, fails into insignificance because it is not a thing! That is not the same as language as what it is, is what it has been described or observed, but it has no history prior to that what has been presented.

If by some form of adaption like a hoop is added, does that simple action trump what was before the hoop? And does the hoop have a specific role that then determines what it can be associated with?

We stand on the shoulders of giants, what would have been the case if those giants took every thing with them? Leaving only a stick in the ground would the stick then be only used in the ground and have no other role?

 

United in different materials

This is my stick, but can you see the wick? (above the a of tessellated) Does the wick in the form of an unknown geometric form yet regular candle determine the other forms?  Which would all burn or melt if the heat was sufficient with or without a flame!
