Harrods windows
Always tricky making things last but this giant spinning top for Harrods
Christmas windows seems to have lasted. Made for 3D Eye.
Designer, Guy Stevens and electronics by Charlie Hope.
We used a strong motor and an Arduino control board.
See it move here.

Back to class

Gone back to life drawing in January with Ed, I am thinking of an alternative

at 17 on the beach at Margate hooking people into have their portraits done.


Breathing fox

A little help for film maker Nick Abrahams.
Used this project to learn some basics about Ardino.
Nice to have company in the studio.
