Well - I have basically, roughly, technically finished my residency. There are of course a few bits and bobs that still need to be tidied up - as ever - however, the bulk of the work has gone baby gone. On Wednesday one full set of prototypes were couriered to Sydney for the refashioning the Fashion exhibition which opens this Friday 20 June at Object Gallery. Another set of diabetes projects were taken to BIO2008 conference in the US (a huge biotech conference that gets around 20000 attendees).
Here are a few pics of the finished prototypes. Photography by Narelle Sheean - she comes highly recommended!

Needless to say the past few weeks have been really chaotic - deadlines tend to bring about this kind of mayhem. I am really happy with the outcomes though and the experience of working with NanoVic and also Catapult Innovations (product engineers on the diabetes project) has been enourmously exciting. There are a whole range of project refinements that need to be thought about to bring these pictured prototypes to their optimum operational ability - however, for the time being I am going to slowly tidy things up and have some much needed time out. Hooray…
