Edward Crocodile-Hands

Edward Crocodile-Hands was thought to be an integral part of the Open Mobile project... however, Edward was a misfit for the project since handling him shakes the whole piece down... so Edward got his freedom and is now a single Hampelmann... when he takes his hand to his head, he lights up his idea hat... but maybe he does other stuff too, he's open to suggestions.

Edward's shape can be downloaded from DIT's mainsite, here and you can print it through a laser cutter. I'm still working on Edward and trying to figure him out (he's an odd fellow), but you can try it too.

Open Mobile

Open Mobile is a col­lab­o­ra­tive art­work that is being devel­oped at Alt­Lab and that is opened to all members.

The mobile is con­sti­tuted by pieces that are devel­oped indi­vid­u­ally or col­lab­o­ra­tively, and the final inte­grant struc­ture is built  in order to sup­port all devel­oped pieces and hav­ing in mind the char­ac­ter­is­tics of each indi­vid­ual piece.

The indi­vid­ual pieces — OMPs (Open Mobile Pieces) can range from 3D printed sculp­tures to elec­tric and/or motor­ized works… stop by Alt­Lab on any Tues­day (from 8.30pm on) and check it out.

Devel­op­ment period: April — July 2013


O Open Mobile é um pro­jecto artís­tico colab­o­ra­tivo a ser desen­volvido no Alt­Lab e o con­vite à par­tic­i­pação é aberto a todos os membros.

A ideia é con­struir uma estru­tura kinética e/ou eléc­trica (aka “mobile) em que cada pes­soa (ou con­junto de pes­soas) desen­volve uma peça inte­grante. O “esqueleto” da estru­tura é pos­te­ri­or­mente desen­volvido de forma a inte­grar as peças indi­vid­u­ais e tendo em conta as suas características.

A elab­o­ração das peças indi­vid­u­ais — OMPs (Open Mobile Pieces) podem ir desde impresssões 3D a tra­bal­hos eléc­tri­cos e/ou motor­iza­dos… passem pelo Alt­Lab numa terça-feira (a par­tir das 20h30) e espreitem.

Período de desen­volvi­mento — Abril — Julho 2013
