So the ticket is booked! I will be in California from August 6-14th! Surfacing here I come!
Things seem to be continuing to progress nicely with the Entropy series. I've been using Rhino to figure out my patterning, which makes life delightfully more simple when it comes to actually laying out all these tiny tiny rings. I also tested one of my pieces for structural security the other day, I'm pretty confident I have found the correct bonder at this point.
With luck I will get all my research done in the next month and then be ready to jump headfirst into thesis land!
Also I have about 7 new shapes/files ready to be cut by ponoko....now its just a matter of making sure my funds are in order...oy.
