 **6:55** Hear our new Maker in Residence Alex Constantino talk about his plans for new work in August and September – 10 min Alex will work on Avalon Island- Show of the work relates to an environment of art work that is enhabited and created in other modes. Chris Thompson added that a micro camera might be used in the micro world that Alex wished to create using these modes with tools at the generator. Files (stl) are useful in many ways for this project and can be saved to be used again in different ways. Train set people could be helpful working in this small scale. People can help here give connections for Alex. Thanks Jon Bondy and Joshua Nye for the train modle sugestions. Facinatiing. Will there be a blog? **6:55** Hear our new Maker in Residence Alex Constantino talk about his plans for new work in August and September – 10 min Alex will work on Avalon Island- Show of the work relates to an environment of art work that is enhabited and created in other modes.
