water wheel 2

its been a while since i updated my blog. lots of stuff happened since then... back in march i got invited to participate at the affordable art fair in battersea,through the kinetica museum. besides showing my xylophone wheel, i also presented a new edition of my water wheel, water wheel 2. ( original name, i know). it was a great little fair with lots of affordable art ranging from £40- £4000.


here's a little run down of 'how to make a water wheel'.
enjoy.

trailer

i always wanted a bike trailer to pull random stuff that wouldnt fit in my bag. one afternoon i decided to make one myself. steel and wood are not the lightest materials but once it goes, it goes.










oil drum bbq

our bbq has seen better days and i always thought that oil drum bbq's are bretty bad ass. so i decided to make one myself.

since we got it, it turned into a grave yard...many(mals) have been cooked on it. nothing beats the alfresco dining experience you get with a bbq of that caliber.
























hoover tubes 2

my first hoover tubes sculpture got sold. amazing stuff. the only draw back is that i cant show it else where, and that is pretty much what happened. i sort of agreed to display it in a gallery in canary wharf without having the work. 

I had about a month time to make a new one and luckily, since i work for john jones, i picked up a few new skills that allowed me to improve the newer version. I spent a little more cash on better parts and made the assembly easier. the lights on the upgraded version are hardwired led's... that come with a remote control and 16 different colours!!!

hoover tubes 2 was shown in the window gallery in canary wharf for a 2 month run. im negotiating terms with a museum in poland that are going to show it for 6 months, starting in december. update coming soon.
